$25 a week can grow to over $50,000* in 18 years

In the same time it takes your child to grow up, you can help make college, university or trade school a reality for them by investing in an RBC Royal Bank® Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP).

  • Invest regularly: Just $25 a week can grow to over $50,000* in 18 years.
  • Take advantage of free money: Get up to $500 a year in government grants (up to $7,200) to put toward your child’s education.
  • Set it and forget it: Automatic contributions into your RBC RESP make it easier to save regularly.
  • Expert advice. An RBC® advisor will take the time to understand your goals and recommend the best investment strategy.
  • Tax-deferred income. Income earned on RESP investments is not taxed as long as the funds remain in the plan.
  • Flexibility. Invest in RBC Funds (including RBC Target Education Funds), savings deposits or Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs) and choose either an individual or family RESP.
