What is an RESP?
It’s short for Registered Education Savings Plan, and it’s a smart savings tool.
You can open an RESP for your child, your niece, your grandson, or any loved one, really. As the child grows, you put money away in the RESP. Then, when it’s time for them to pursue a post-secondary education and their career or dreams, they won’t have to worry about whether or not they can afford it.
The best part? There’s no tax on the earnings while in the plan and the government puts in education savings grants and incentives too. In short, an RESP can grow quickly, just like that amazing kid in your life.

A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a retirement savings and investing vehicle for employees and the self-employed in Canada. Pre-tax money is placed into an RRSP and grows tax-free until withdrawal, at which time it is taxed at the marginal rate. Registered Retirement Savings Plans have many features in common with 401(k) plans in the United States, but also some key differences.
The growth of an RRSP is determined by its contents. Simply having money in an RRSP is not a guarantee that you may retire comfortably; however, it is a guarantee that the investments will compound without being taxed, as long as the funds are not withdrawn
