Use this opportunity to promote your advisory role by introducing your clients to all the advantages of subscribing early to an RESP:

  • Investment income that grows tax-free
  • When your clients contribute, the federal government and some provinces provide generous grants (at least 20% and in some provinces, more than 30%)
  • The sooner your clients contribute, the faster they will benefit from the investment returns and accumulate more for their child or grandchild's future.

To better accompany you in this RESP period, you will have access to materials to generate new business opportunities:

  • Making a winning choice for your child’s future (F13-586A)
  • Who can help you save for their future? (F13‑548A)
  • General Rules (F13-550A)
  • Comparison of iA products with similar products offered by foundations
