Heritage Education Funds
I've always known that I wanted a big family, and I am so happy to have been blessed with one. My house is full of love and laughter (and tears and tantrums some days too).
There are so many wonderful things about having kids, and a few scary ones too. The cost of post secondary education is high, scarily so, and it wont be going anywhere but up. Combine that with the fact that the spacing of my children makes the possibility of having at least two students in college or university at the same time almost a guarantee, and you can see why I worry.
If each of my three children seeks a four year degree, the cost will easily reach six digits. I want to help them with their educations, to give them the best start possible, but without having to remortgage my house!
My children each have an RESP that we contribute to monthly, but I worry that it wont be enough. Recently I have been asking aunts, uncles and grandparents to forgo toys and clothes as birthday and Christmas gifts and instead contribute towards their RESP's.
Now that tax season is here, I also plan on contributing my tax return towards their educational savings. It will give their saving a great boost, and is an easy way to get a few steps closer to our goals.
It so important to max out your contributions annually, in order to get the maximum Canadian Education Savings Grant from the government. Each child is entitled up to $7200 over the lifetime of their RESP, that's free money.
