Yearly Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) Contributions by Forward Sortation Area
Contributions refer to the amount of savings deposited into a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) on behalf of a child. Earnings on RESP savings can grow tax-free until the money is withdrawn to finance the child’s post-secondary education.
This dataset presents the number of beneficiaries receiving contributions and the amount contributed to their RESPs in 2021 and 2022 by Forward Sortation Area (FSA), which were obtained from the Canada Education Savings Program (CESP) administrative data.
Population counts of 30 or below (and their corresponding dollar values) are suppressed due to privacy issues and are replaced by an asterisk in the dataset.
Please note that the Open Government Portal provides data that add to those already available in the Canada Education Savings Program Annual Statistical Review. The most recent version of the report, which includes data up to 2022, was published on January 29, 2023 and can be found here: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/student-financial-aid/education-savings/reports/statistical-review.html.
