My sweet friend had a baby this fall and my dearest friend suggested that I should most definitely write something on the topic of RESP’s. Post-secondary costs are increasing constantly. What it cost me to go to University will not be what it costs my sweet children to attend. As Canadians, we are lucky that Post-Secondary has not jumped to the astronomical rates they have in the States, but it still costs a pretty penny. The fact that the average Canadian student is saddled with $30,000 in student loan debt is a huge burden to bear as a newly minted grad.
