Why do I need to plan for children Education?

Our Children –our hope for the future. We want to make sure that they have the best possible education to succeed in their personal and professional life. A post-secondary education can be expensive. To manage these costs successfully, you need an effective, flexible savings plan. Projections indicated that in 2028 it will cost much more for a 4-year university program for a student living away from home. The job market of the future requires more training and education. It is better to start early but it’s never too late to invest in the children’s future. The investment income is transferable to your RRSP if the child does not pursue a post-secondary education.

Tax-Deferred Growth

An RESP is a tax sheltered saving plan, designed for the post-secondary students. The contributions in the RESP plan are already taxed at the contributor’s tax rat, while the growth and the CESG is taxed on withdrawals at the beneficiary’s tax rate. As the recipient is typically a student, these individuals generally pay little or no federal income tax, owing to tuition and education tax credits. Thus, with the tax-free principal contribution of CESG available for withdrawal nearly tax free.
