Registered Education Savings Plan
You can combine government grants to potentially build substantial eduation savings. Invest your child's Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) of $100 per month. When you set up your direct deposit for the UCCB, set up a monthly contribution of the same $100 to a RESP for your child.
The entire amount will be tax-sheltered. By the time your child is ready for post-secondary school, the amount may be enough to pay for your child's education, without spending a penny of your own.
There are many different types of investments avalaible to someone saving for future education. Whether it is for yourself or your children, an HMECU Certified Financial Planner will help find an investment that's right for you.
