Open an RESP, we’ll plant a tree


With the kids back in school, it’s a great time to think about your child’s lifelong learning journey. This year, you have one more reason to start investing for their education.

CI Direct Investing has partnered with Tree Canada. For every new funded RESP account, we’ll plant a tree in your child’s honour. Tree Canada helps bring greenery into urban spaces and reforest areas struck by disaster, ensuring there are vast green spaces for generations to come.

You’ll be investing in their future, and doing something great for the planet. 

Here’s how it works:

Open an account

When you open an RESP account you can start with a one-time contribution, or add a little bit every month. When you make your first deposit, we’ll work with Tree Canada to plant a tree in your child’s honour.

Watch your money grow

Once you’ve added $1,000 to your account, your money is automatically invested. CI Direct Investing’s low-fee investment portfolios are diversified to take advantage of market growth and help defend against downturns. 

Take advantage of government grants

The government will contribute 20 cents for every dollar you put in your accounts, up to $2,500 per year. That means you could get up to an additional $500 per child, per year.
