Québec Education Savings Incentive
We are currently updating this page. In the meantime, you can refer to the guide to the income tax return (TP-1.G-V) for up-to-date information.
The Québec education savings incentive (QESI) is a tax measure that encourages Québec families to start saving early for the post-secondary education of their children and grandchildren.
This measure, which took effect on February 21, 2007, consists of a refundable tax credit that is paid directly into a registered education savings plan (RESP) opened with an RESP provider that offers the QESI.
For the credit to be paid into a child's RESP, the trustee of the RESP must apply for it with Revenu Québec.
If you wish to open an RESP, contact an RESP provider that offers the QESI, such as:
- a financial institution
- a group plan dealer
- a financial services provider
