What Ontario Budget 2017 means for families starting an Registered Education Savings Plan

Starting in 2018, families in Ontario will no longer need to worry about holding a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) when their students apply for the Ontario Student Assistance Program.  

The province made the surprise change to the OSAP reforms – announced in the 2016 budget – on April 27, stating that if students have an RESP, it will no longer affect the financial assistance they receive.

It’s incredibly inspiring when a child grows to recognize what they are truly capable of and starts to believe in their potential.

CST’s partnership with Career Trek in Manitoba aims to help children and families along that journey.

Career Trek is a not-for-profit organization which helps young people discover the importance of education and career development, by offering hands-on experience with various jobs.

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.
