Saving for a child’s education

Attending post-secondary education can make a big difference to earning potential and standard of living. But with education costs continuing to rise, it is more important now than ever to start saving early. Saving for a child's post-secondary education may be easier than you think. The key is to start early and make it automatic using a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP).

Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs)

An RESP is an effective way to maximize the money available to children when they enroll in a full-time, post-secondary program. Although contributions are not tax-deductible, money inside the plan can grow tax-free until it's withdrawn. In addition, the government offers several grants to help you build your education savings.
