Up to a lifetime total of $50,000 per child can be saved. Contributions are not tax deductible, however investment income that’s earned within the plan isn’t taxed until it's withdrawn and it is typically at a lower rate.The federal government can add to your savings with education grants.

When you open an Education Savings Plan, you are eligible to receive the Canadian Education Savings Grant. The CESG matches 20% of annual contributions up to a maximum of $500 per year and $7,200 lifetime limit per child.
