WHAT IS AN RESP
RESPs are a reliable way to save for a child’s education

A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is an investment dedicated to saving for your child's post-secondary education.

RESPs offer great incentives to help grow your investments. The Canadian and some Provincial Governments provide ways to accelerate RESP savings through grants and tax-deferred growth.

CST Plans offer the flexibility for beneficiaries to use their RESP for a range of post-secondary options. RESPs are also open to anyone—friends and family can start plans for any child or contribute to established plans.
