Education Planning
With post-secondary education growing increasingly expensive, you need to plan ahead and make smart decisions today.


If you have children, grandchildren or know of another young person you would like to help, this section will guide you in investing for the education they need.

Get Started

Get started by estimating the expenses your children will incur during their post-secondary school years. Keep in mind that the cost of tuition, housing, books and incidentals continues to rise, so you must adjust your figures for anticipated inflation. Through this process, you can quite accurately determine the monthly, yearly or one-time deposit required to fund the future costs of education.

Next, you need to decide on the best investment vehicle to reach your savings goals. The most popular educational savings vehicle today is the Registered Educational Savings Plan, or RESP, as it is commonly known. You also have other options, including an In-Trust Account and a Scholarship Trust Fund.

What to Do with Unused RESP Funds?

For a variety of reasons, your child might not require all the money that has accumulated in their RESP.

Maybe your child is simply responsible and frugal. The student could decide to take a break from school with no set return date. Or, possibly, a decision was made not to pursue post-secondary schooling.
