Transfers out of Registered Educational Savings Plan (RESP)
If you have established an RESP (Registered Educational Savings Plan) and made tax deductible payments, if a child does not pursue post-secondary education, one of your options, if the RESP has existed for at least 10 years and all beneficiaries are over the age of 21 and not pursuing a post-secondary education, is to transfer up to $50,000 to your RRSP (or your spousal RRSP) provided you have the contribution room available.
