If you are interested in setting up a new RESP for a child in your life, or if you already have an RESP and would like to do more to maximize your savings, contact us anytime to discuss.  The contribution calendar for an RESP is January to December, so if you’d like to make a contribution before the end of 2021, please contact us...
