We make it easy to start saving for your child's education early and contribute regularly. With our help, you'll have the funds you need, when you need them. Even if your child doesn’t go to a post-secondary institution or use the funds, you have other options. For example, if you meet certain conditions and have enough RRSP contribution room, you can withdraw your contributions tax-free or transfer up to $50,000 in accumulated earnings to an RRSP.
Save on your schedule
You decide when and how much to contribute within the lifetime contribution limit of $50,000 per child. You also decide how you want to invest your funds.
Earnings accumulate tax-free until you withdraw the money. You can contribute up to a lifetime limit of $50,000 per child until 31 years after you first opened the account.
Flexible to use
You can use your RESP savings for a variety of expenses related to your child’s post-secondary education. This includes tuition, housing and many other costs.
