If you live in BC, the British Columbia Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG) can add $1,200/child to your RESP without you having to contribute any money of your own. All you need to do is apply for this grant when your child is between the ages of 6-9 and, even if you move out of BC, the money remains in your RESP.
