Benefits of saving for your child's post-secondary education with a
Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP).
The federal government will provide a grant to your RESP contributions (up to a maximum of $500 per year, per child) with the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG). The CESG is payable until the end of the calendar year a child turns 17, and the maximum lifetime grant payment is $7,200.
Although contributions are not tax-deductible, all investment income generated in the RESP is tax-sheltered as long as it remains in the plan.
Flexibility of use
The withdrawals can be used for a variety of education costs, including tuition, books and living expenses. Timing of withdrawal of funds is determined by you.
Tax savings for the contributor
When money is withdrawn and used to pay for the child's post-secondary education, the plan earnings and government contributions are taxed according to the child's income at that time. As a student, he/she may pay little or no taxes on the money.
