How do RESPs work?

1. Contribute

You begin to save early by contributing to your child’s Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) and benefiting from generous government grants.

2. Accrue

Together, your regular contributions and government grants generate returns. Your Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) grows tax-free.

3. Reap

You get your contributions back to fund your child’s education. Your child receives the grants and the total return from the Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP).

The main advantages of an RESP

  • Accrue more thanks to government grants
