RDSP Resources

Information & Resources

At Plan Institute, one of our major initiatives is to encourage financial security via uptake of the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). The RDSP is a powerful savings tool similar to a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) but designed specifically for people living with a disability. It offers people the opportunity to save for the future, and also to take advantage of up to $90,000 the federal government may provide on their behalf. Even a small investment will attract a government grant contribution, so it can be an excellent return on investment.

We have many resources available to help you learn about, become eligible and open an RDSP. Click on one of the options below to get started.
