Saving for post-secondary education: Em20-60/2017E-PDF

findings from the Canadian Financial Capability Survey : technical study prepared for the Canada Education Savings Program summative evaluation /

“This report is part of a series of quantitative reports that aims to assess the impacts and effects of the Canada Education Savings Program (CESP) on the savings of families. The following summative evaluation questions are examined by this study: 1) Why are some families saving for post-secondary education (PSE) while others are not saving? 2) What are the characteristics of families who save versus families who do not save? 3) What are Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) take-up rates, and what is the socio-economic and financial literacy profile of RESP participants? 4) What is the total amount of PSE savings in RESPs? 5) To what extent are families who are in debt putting money into RESPs? 6) To what extent are Canadians saving for PSE outside of an RESP, and what sources of savings are they using? 7) What other PSE funding strategies do students use?"--Study objectives, p. 4.
