Government grants are a key advantage of RESPs; other registered or tax-deferred savings plans such as Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) and Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) do not offer access to government grant money. These grants are funds that the federal and certain provincial governments offer to help parents save towards post-secondary education. At CST, we simplify the grant process by applying directly to the government on your behalf for eligible grants. 

For information on government grants available to you, you can reach us at 1-877-333-7377 or email us at cstplan@cst.org. We’ll work with you to apply for all of the government grants that your Plan is eligible for and to help you reach your education savings goals.
