Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)

BC Training and Education Savings Grant

Families in British Columbia are encouraged to start planning and saving early for their children’s post-secondary education or training programs. To help, the B.C. Government will contribute $1,200 to eligible children through the B.C. Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG). This is in addition to the federal grants your children receive. If we manage your RESP – we have or will be in touch once your child turns 6 to apply for this one-time grant.

In the link below, there’s a chart identifying some deadlines for children with birth years of 2007-2008 and an upcoming deadline of August 15, 2018 to apply if you haven’t already done so. If for any reason, you don’t have a RESP account and your child was born in 2007-2008, please contact us ASAP.
