Planning For Your Childs Education in the GTA

The cost of a post-secondary education in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and the rest of Ontario is rising fast. In fact, Ontario is home to the highest annual undergraduate tuition in the country at $7,868.

This doesn’t include books, student fees, housing, or food. That’s why it’s important to start saving for your child’s post-secondary education. And the sooner the better.

Education Savings Plans for Children in the GTA

You can set your child up for success and make sure they meet the strenuous financial demands of a post-secondary education by opening a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) with Global RESP Corporation (GRESP).

An RESP is a savings plan registered with the Government of Canada that helps you save, tax-free, for your child’s post-secondary education. As the owner of the RESP, you can make annual contributions of up to $2,500 per year, for a lifetime maximum of $50,000.

Through the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG), the Canadian government will match 20% of your RESP contributions, up to a lifetime maximum of $7,200. Lower-income families in the GTA may be eligible for additional government assistance with the Canada Learning Bond in which the Government will give you $2,000 for your RESP even if you never contribute to the plan

Once you decide to open an RESP, a Dealing Representative at GRESP will help you decide which type of RESP you should open. Knowing the differences, benefits, and drawbacks of each RESP will help you determine which one is best suited to the beneficiary’s educational needs.
