What you see is really all that I know...

What is the request for? Historical grant/contribution amounts?
That is what I have asked for. That way I know how much historical room I have left and know when the grant is going to maximize. I'll let everyone know what I get when it arrives.

According to the site they are also committed to quick responses. :eek:

What I got from the Canada Education Savings Program

Today I received my response from Human Resources and Social Development Canada in the form of a "Statement of Account".

It's pretty straightforward with a table of our RESP contributions per year to each RESP Promoter (company) and the corresponding CESG that we received.

After that list is a similar table for Summary of Educational Assistance Program (EAPs), but since we don't have any, it is empty.

Lastly, it shows your child s "Lifetime Totals" for:
-Accumulated Grant Room (total available CESG once "requisite contributions have been made")
-Lifetime CESG Deposited (what they have given into the RESP)
-Lifetime CESG portion of EAP (amount of CESG paid out as an EAP)

Attached is a list of definitions.

Overall, I happy with a pretty quick response from the ol' Government of Canada and it was the information I was looking for.
