A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is a special savings account for parents who want to save for their child’s post-secondary education. The federal government can add to your savings with education grants based on family net income and contribution.
Plus, your savings grow tax-deferred until withdrawn. When the student withdraws the investment income and grants for educational purposes, the withdrawals are taxed in the student’s hands, typically at a lower rate.
We can help you personalize an investment portfolio based on your financial security goals, your tolerance to risk and your timeline for realizing your goals.
