About Us

Our Commitment to Education

At Knowledge First Financial, we are committed to inspiring students to realize life’s possibilities by enabling families to maximize their education savings through RESP Specialists. Since 1965, the company has paid $7.5 billion to customers and students. With $6.0 billion in assets under management, we are Canada’s largest RESP Company with a sole focus on education savings.

Our RESP Specialists meet with Canadians from coast to coast to coast, each and every day. Thanks to their efforts, more families learn about the importance of saving for their children’s future education. The company’s head office is located in Mississauga, Ontario and is staffed by professionals who are equally committed to helping our customers achieve their education savings goals.

Today, we manage over 500,000 RESPs for our customers and each year approximately 60,000 students attend post-secondary with the help of one of our plans.
