RESP: Will it Be Enough?

For the 2018/2019 school year, average tuition costs and additional compulsory fees for Canadian undergraduate students were $7,741. Ontario had the highest fees with an average of $9,771 for the school year. According to a Macleans piece, that only covers 34% of average school costs. The other $13,000 or so is eaten up by living expenses. That begs the question, will savings in an RESP be sufficient to cover education costs in Canada?

  • As a client of Cameron for several years, I have been impressed with his sound investment strategy and unique personalized service that makes my family feel as if we are his only customer. During this time I encouraged several high net worth colleagues to get in touch with him. As a testament to Cameron’s affable and informed manner, 100% of these contacts became customers of his. Seems like people know a good thing when they experience it…
