Pourquoi devrait-on donner priorité à l’épargne-études

As any parent knows, you just want the best for your kids. You want them to experience all that life has to offer. To explore new opportunities and follow their dreams.  

So why, then, are so many parents spending more on their child’s extracurriculars than they’re saving for their post-secondary education? We asked ourselves this very question as we analyzed the findings of our second annual Beyond the Blue Line survey this week, which examines the priorities of Canadian parents.

What better way to spend a snowy night in Canada than talking RESPS? On Wednesday, November 19, we had the privilege of chatting education savings with Canadians in our #LetsTalkRESPs Twitter party. Our hashtag was trending across the country and certainly made a big splash in the Twitterverse with more than 3,200 tweets (that's almost 1 tweet per second!)

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.
