What do you want to be when you grow up? For many, that question is easy – a doctor, an accountant, or maybe even a world-class chef.

While these professions don’t have much in common, they do all require one important thing: education. When it comes to financing their education, many students are fortunate enough to receive assistance (through a Registered Education Savings Plan, for example), while others have to fund their university or college degrees through scholarships, bursaries and other grants.  

November 16-22, 2014 marks the first ever Education Savings Week in Canada. CST Consultants is proud to be one of the many organizations that helped bring this idea to life. For months, we worked behind-the-scenes with our partners to brainstorm how we could help start a national discussion about education savings and why families should consider opening a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) to plan for their child’s future.  

Halloween

If you’re a parent, you know firsthand just how pricey Halloween can get. From the pumpkins and the decorations to the state-of-the-art costumes and candy for the neighbourhood trick-or-treaters, it all adds up. And - according to YAHOO! Finance - spending is expected to be even higher than usual this year.

We scoured the web this week to find articles that offer simple tips to help you keep your Halloween spending in check. Here are our favourites:

LEARNING PROJECT

Not-for-profits have a huge impact in our society, but there always seems to be an underlying problem across the board: a lack of funding. There is an abundance of bright minds with fresh, new ideas, but many organizations just aren’t able to fund innovative projects without grants or significant donations.

Thank you for giving

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks - to our families, friends and customers.

This year at CST Consultants, we decided to do something special for two of our clients. It's our small way of saying thank you to those who have trusted us with their child's education savings and helped their kids reach their dreams.
