If you wish to stop making contributions, you can do so at any time. Just remember, within the first 3 years of opening your plan you must maintain a minimum $500 balance. And rest assured that your little scholar will still be able to use the grant money you’ve earned so far in your RESP for post-secondary school. Meanwhile, your RESP investments can continue to earn investment income, so even if you’re not able to contribute, you can still be earning money!
