Ask any child what she wants to be when she grows up. Odds are she's going to need some education after high school to achieve her goal.

More Canadians are saving more money for college than ever before. Maybe it has something to do with the increasing cost of tuition or the stories we hear about students with large debt loads that have parents convinced they need to plan ahead and save for their child’s academic career. Newly released data from HRSDC (Human Resources and Skills Development Canada) shows that roughly 45 per cent of Canadian children had an RESP (Registered Education Savings Plan) set up for them by their parents in 2012.

Promo Graduate

You’ve spent the past 17 years dreaming of this day. All those years of hauling your kids to school, packing lunches and then checking homework assignments are finally over. You’ve painstakingly visited college and university campuses, watched your child anxiously sort through mail until they received the acceptance letter from their post-secondary school of choice and helped them send their acceptance letter. Now you’re planning for your child’s graduation day, and perhaps even planning that last family summer vacation before your now not-so-little one heads off to – gasp – college!

There's a lot of conversation about public policy as it relates to post-secondary education. But education isn’t just about public policy; it’s about encouraging children to excel and inspiring them to fulfil their dreams for the future. At CST Consultants we believe it’s not public policy that will motivate a child; it’s the education positive environment that she grows up in that instils in her the belief that achieving any dream is possible. It’s about what happens in families and with their children. I know. I have seven of my own.
