Canada Education Savings Program (CESP) - The CESP provides savings incentives to encourage saving for your child’s education after high school by using a Registered Education Savings plan (RESP) account. Additional information on applying for an RESP is available at SmartSaver:
"You can get up to $2,000 in free education money...REALLY! All you have to do is open a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP). You don't have to put any of your money into the plan to get this money from the Government of Canada. When you open an RESP, the Government will deposit $500 right away and could deposit up to $1,500 more by the time your child is 15. That's up to $2,000 for your child’s education after high school." (SmartSaver)."
