In today’s episode I will talk about RESP. A Registered Education Savings Plan is an investment vehicle available to parents in Canada to save for their children’s post-secondary education .

The principal advantages of RESPs are the access they provide to the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) and as method of generating tax-deferred income.

Grants on annual contributions between $500 and $2,500 are matched at the rate of 20% as described above. Combined CESG and ACESG lifetime grant maximum of $7,200 per child.
