Making a withdrawal from your RESP

If your child is getting ready to attend post-secondary school, now’s the time to start thinking about withdrawing money from your Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP).


How are RESPs taxed?

One of the main benefits of an RESP is that it’s a tax-deferred savings plan; however, when it’s time to take the money out, there are some things to consider.


What to do with an RESP if your child doesn't go to college or university

Let’s face it – plans can change. Although many parents want their children to go to college or university, not everyone’s future involves a post-secondary campus. These days, there are plenty of opportunities available to people who take a different path.


What happens with RESPs in a divorce or separation?

Divorce or separation can be a challenging time for families. It's important to consider the impact on your child's future, including their education savings.
