Canada Registered Education Savings Plan

A RESP, a Registered Education Savings Plan, is a tax-deferred savings plan widely used by parents to save for post-secondary education for their children. Contributions to a RESP for a child beneficiary can qualify for payments to the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG). Investment income from contributions and CESG payments may grow tax-free until it is distributed and included in the recipient's income and taxed accordingly. In most cases, a student whose gross income results in a minimum tax amount is the beneficiary.
