Your child's education

First you were putting on their diapers. Then you walked them to their kindergarten classroom. You helped them with their math homework. You listened to their loud music through the walls. Are you ready for what comes next?

Post-secondary education tuition can cost over $6,000 per year.1 If you have multiple children, you are looking at a lot of money if you are planning on helping them out. How can you make this process easier?

A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is one option.Contributions to these accounts receive a 20% match from the Canadian Education Savings Grant up to $2,500 per year, which is $500 of free money. If your income is low, you can receive a 30-40% match on the first $500. Setting up a trust account is another option to help pay for college.

Saving for Post-secondary education can appear daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Your financial advisor can help create a road map so you can make progress in steps. Before you know it, your child will be out of Post-secondary education, and you’ll be putting on diapers again – on your grandchildren.

What our clients are saying...

  • We valued receiving a detailed report and explanation of our finances. When working with a financial planner, we expect to have our questions answered with adequate detail and to have a plan developed to help grow our money. Our expectations were clearly met and we would be happy to recommend Anthony to anyone looking for a Financial Plan.

  • We valued the fact that you sat down with us, heard what we wanted to say, asked for clarification and offered suggestions, and then came up with a detailed and well-reasoned plan in a short period of time and communicated that back to us so that we knew what we needed to do moving forward. Thanks!

    Our expectations for a financial planner are several fold: (1) Does the planner communicate well, in that they both listen but also offer suggestions and ideas in a clear easy-to-understand way, (2) Are they able to meet their client at the same energy/level and meet their specific needs? In our case we needed a tax minimization strategy within a short turn around time. (3) Did the planner actually do their job, in that were they able to provide ideas and suggestions that helped address the client's asks?

    We came to see you because we realised that we hadn't looked at how to minimize the taxes related to my Father’s estate planning and my mother’s future financial planning, and you were able to tell us things that we didn't know about, and offered us solutions that helped us with our future financial planning.

    You definitely met our expectations! In some ways, you actually exceeded our expectations. We were hoping that you could respond quickly, and you came up with a detailed and well-reasoned plan faster than we expected!

    Our only area of improvement we could think of was, given that the plan was very detailed, if we had an explicitly spelled out action plan with a timeline for completion.

    We are very happy and would definitely recommend you to our family and friends and in fact have already done so!

  • Anthony made the process very clear and explained each step along the way. He was very honest and straight forward. My expectation from a financial planner is that they are honest and transparent. Anthony definitely met my expectations and I would be happy to recommend him to my family and friends.

  • When working with a financial planner our expectations are to maximize our investments and have a solid plan for retirement. We now have a greater awareness of our current portfolio and options to best protect our estate. We were provided with good information to use in order to make better investment and estate planning decisions. We would gladly recommend Anthony to our family and friends.

  • We value the personal service and detailed explanations we receive from Anthony on an ongoing basis. We feel comfortable recommending Anthony to our family and friends as he is someone who we can trust and has our best interests in mind. He has been great at helping us work towards a comfortable and manageable retirement.

  • The financial planning process we went through was clearly outlined and explained to me. I wanted to have a better understanding of my financial position and to know whether I could retire early or not.

    I am happy to recommend Anthony to my family and friends.
