Quebec Education Savings Incentive (QESI)

The QESI is a tax measure that encourages Quebec families to start saving early for the education of their children and grandchildren.

The incentive, which came into effect on February 21, 2007, consists of a refundable tax credit that is paid directly into a registered education savings plan (RESP) opened with a financial institution or with another RESP provider that offers the QESI.

For the credit to be paid to your account, the trustee designated by your RESP provider must apply for it with Revenu Québec.

If you wish to open an RESP, you may contact an RESP provider that offers the QESI, such as:

  • a financial institution;
  • a group plan dealer; or
  • a financial service provider.
