First, a subscriber, usually a parent or relative, enters into an RESP contract with a promoter. The subscriber can name one or more children as beneficiaries. Children can be added to a family plan later as long as they are siblings.
Over the years, the subscriber makes regular contributions into the plan. The promoter applies for government education savings grants on behalf of the subscriber to take advantage of government contributions into the RESP. (Why say no to money from the government!?) The promoter also helps the subscriber invest the money.
When the child is ready for post-secondary school, he or she can start taking out money from the RESP as Education Assistance Payments (EAPs).
