  • I work for CST and started off as a CST client for 9 years now with RESPs for both my children. I've been so impressed with the company that I decided to join them as a rep. The service has been outstanding from my rep from day one and I'm so grateful for the help she gave us setting up the RESPs for our children and tailoring savings plans for us that work for our family. Now 9 years in I'm very happy with the returns and the track that we're on where we will be exceeding our original savings goals. Now as an employee of CST I can say that they are wonderful to work for. Very supportive and focused on the mission of helping Canadian families. I've studied Finance at the University level and with my in-depth knowledge of the industry and my personal experience I feel really good about being a part of this team. I'm thrilled every day to be helping families with their most precious investment.

  • ***** My experience with CST has been excellent. Well informed managers and consultants, excellent plan performance even during economic down terms and not to mention the added benefit of extra money from accounts that were prematurely terminated. The 4 year EAP payments were more than expected! I’m very glad we decided to go with CST for our RESP plans. — David M. Hill

  • I used CST for my son 35 years ago, and have been proud to represent them, as an agent, for over 20 years. As a truly not-for-profit organization, they make every decision on what's best for the child/student and not what will maximize profits.

  • I love the excellent security of CST's investments, with their great rate of return and very low fees. It pays to go with a non-profit!! My children will go to university with every penny I've put into the plan, plus every penny of the grants we've collected, regardless of whether the stock market crashes in the meantime. I love the low risk!!

  • I would suggest that all families need to really think hard about their children’s education. I have seen tuition get more and more each that when the kids finally finish school they are so far in debt it doesn’t help when they also need to start looking at their future. I started my granddaughter’s educational fund with cst when she was a week old. She is now 14 and is thinking about what she wants to do and what to take in college or university. The consultant that came to see me was very informative and helpful. I’m just really glad I did it!

  • It is great, I am glad we started to plan years ago. My daughter is going through University right now and our only regret is that we didn't start the program from when she was born. It took a friend that worked for CST to convince us when she was three. Fortunately our second kid was a new born so he will reap the full benefits.

  • I didn't know cst would work out. I had lost money in market crashes and never recouped it and I didn't have faith in savings and I had become cynical about investing. I put just a wee bit in every month so that if it was lost I wouldn't be sad or disappointed. Yet when the time came, the money was there!!!! There was enough for my son to do what he desired to do and It was easy to access. Customer service was amazing! It was well worth it. For my other children I may even increase the tiny bit I've been putting in cuz now I know it really does work and really is real money.

  • Investing your RESP with CST is a conservative, safe and good return approach compared to other high risks investment plans. I recommend joining CST and put your trust in their management expertise.

  • I am very thankful that CST was there for one of my daughters who started university in 2014 .As a single parent this was my contribution and an incentive for her to further her education.She graduates 2019 with a bachelor of science with no student debt.Her sister decided higher education was not for her so CST has given some of the money meant for her to her sister.I highly have recommended this program to my friends and family,because if you dont have a savings plan early for your children they may become discouraged to further their education.

  • Well let me tell you, investing in the CST Plan was one of the best investments I have ever made in my life. I highly recommend that all parents invest in a RESP, as it has paid-off big-time for me and my children. There is just one thing that has bothered me continually over the 18 years that I contributed to the CST Plan . That one thing is the fact that CST was never able to explain CLEARLY how their various plans work and what happens when the plan matures. They told me verbally, but it was hard to picture in my mind. I must have had at least 50 conversations with various people at CST over the years and for the life of me I was never able to grasp how it all works. I think CST should put together an A to Z video explaining and showing how the plan works using real life examples. Even at this point, now that our plans have matured and are half-way through the payouts, I still do not understand how it all came together. I guess you could say I just had blind faith in the process and fortunately that blind faith paid-off. Lucky me.

  • We signed up both our boys with CST. Now they are both in iuniversity, paid for by our contributions to this plan. I’m glad we signed up. Our contributions, plus the Government incentive makes it worthwhile. Getting you contributions in, and drawing down the money when my kids began university was problem-free, and hassle-free. If I had to, I’ll do the same thing all over again.

  • I would highly recommend CST as a safe and reliable RESP. We were able to put one child completely through a Bachelor of Applied Psychology Degree and are currently paying for a second child enrolled in a UVIC Business Degree through the CST plan. My advise would be to maximize your payments as education costs are rising just as fast as all other cost of living!

  • We started with CST when our daughters were born and contributed to the RESPs until they turned 18. Both of them are in university now and we have accessed the funds. Withdrawal was easy and my online chats and phone calls with the representatives has always been positive. I know that that worried about putting all this money in year after year if there would be issues when it came time to withdraw it - there were no surprises at all. My only negative feedback would be that there was very little communication from our plan representative - if we didn't reach out, we never heard from her.
