Financial aid options for Canadian citizens or permanent residents

Canada Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)

An RESP is a, tax-deferred, savings vehicle generally used by parents to save for their children’s post-secondary education.

Contributions to an RESP for a child beneficiary may be eligible for Canada Education Savings Grant payments (CESG). Investment earnings on contributions and CESG payments can grow tax-free until they are distributed and included in the recipient’s income, and taxed accordingly. In most cases, the recipient is a student whose total income results in a minimal amount of tax.
