Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) - The facts

An RESP is a tax-assisted plan that can help save money for post-secondary education. Contributions to an RESP are not tax-deductible, but the money inside the plan will grow tax-deferred until it’s withdrawn for a post-secondary educational program. In addition, there are grants and incentives available from the government of Canada and certain provinces to help build education savings.
