Is it true that with Kaleido I can withdraw from my RESP upon post-secondary school enrolment?


Yes! Whatever plan you have with us, the funds accumulated for your beneficiary’s education―known as educational assistance payments, or EAPs―are available upon his or her enrolment in a post-secondary program of study.

Under the Income Tax Act (Canada), the EAP limit during the first 13 weeks of post-secondary education is set at $5,000 for full-time programs. All RESP providers are subject to this restriction when making payments.

This limit allows students to start off on the right foot while ensuring they still have funds afterwards to pursue their education! To learn more about smart RESP withdrawal strategies, we invite you to read this article: Smart RESP Withdrawal Strategies.
