About Registered Education Savings Plans

It’s no secret – Canadians parents believe that education opens doors, broadens horizons and enriches lives. Although it comes at a price, post-secondary education isn’t as much a cost as it is an investment – one that returns a wealth of opportunities for a rewarding career.

At Knowledge First Financial, we believe the path to success starts with your decision to save with Registered Education Savings Plan. It’s a smart and proven way to invest in your child’s future that gives you more in the end – more funding for your child’s education and more peace of mind for you.

There are other ways to pay for education: personal savings, student loans, part-time student jobs. But the fact is, no other savings plan offers as much as RESPs. Here are just some of the benefits:
