My experience with CST is second to none. As someone who works in both the Financial Services industry and higher education, I know a thing or two about investments and RESPs. Quite simply, RESPs are every other financial provider’s “side business”. They are generally not equipped and don’t care enough about RESPs and helping prepare for your child going to university. CST is focused on this market and does an exceptional job. I could go on and on about the quality of the advice, the excellent (and industry-leading statements), great customer service, and proactive communication/payment. Our daughter just started University and the process for payment was smooth – it was just as easy to use and understand the benefits, as it was to sign up. I highly recommend CST to anyone with a child that wants to save for university.
Saving with CST was the best and helpful decision I’ve ever made to help my children for their University/College tuition. Otherwise, I will not be able to save it on my own by just leaving my savings in the bank. Much thanks and I wish the company more success, growth and more parents/children help save for their future.

It has been excellent. The support staff on the phone line is amazing. I have never dealt with staff that is more helpful or patient. I honestly am amazed every time I call. I am used to call in center staff finding reasons not to help you. With CST, they do everything possible to help you!
CST was a great idea many years ago. It has made it much easier for our son to go to University. The financial burden is lessened dramatically. I little money once a month over numerous years was much easier than trying to come up with it in lump sums every semester. The interest earned was decent as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking of their child’s future!
I am very glad that we chose CST to plan for my daughter’s post-secondary education. For our situation, it was quite difficult to set aside some money for this plan, mainly due to the fact that we have lower average income. However, the sacrifice was worth it, because at the end there were no worries for my daughter’s tuition when the time came to be. After they gathered our requirements every year for the grant, a week later we would receive the help. So we highly recommend.
The service is excellent. CST responds promptly to inquiries. CST invests your dollars wisely. The scholarship application and payment process is a walk in the park. I am a highly satisfied customer.

I bought my plan back in 2000 when my daughter was born. In my opinion, CST was the best choice due to their great customer service, yearly updates and statements to keep us up to date. I recommend CST to parents who are looking to buy RESP plans for their children.

My dad helped me and my 3 siblings get through post secondary with CST in the 70’s and 80’s. Now I am helping my own 3 kids out with U of C and SAIT. Hope they will pass this on to my grandkids some day! D. Barth Calgary AB

I have a wonderful and fruitful experience with CST. I will highly recommend CST for your RESP. The company have better returns and very easy to deal with. Thank you very much CST for helping me and my child go a long way.

The whole process from sign-up 17 years ago to the on-line claim this year was easy. I am very happy with the CST plan and would recommend it to anyone.

The CST RESP was an invaluable source of financial support for me throughout my four-year undergraduate degree. If not for CST Sales Representative Emmy Kulai, who introduced my parents to the CST RESP Plan, my parents and I would have had much greater strain and stress around financing my education. Emmy provided essential information for maximizing the benefit of the program for my education and also provided continual guidance to my parents to make the process simple – we could not have asked for a better representative! Having applied for and been awarded one of ten CST 2014 Graduate Awards to help finance my further education, I feel even more grateful for the benefits of taking part in a CST Plan. Financing one’s education can be a smooth process with the help of CST!

I do not believe my undergraduate education would have evolved in the same way without the Canadian Scholarship Trust Plan. The invaluable academic and non-academic experiences that I gained with the help of CST have positioned me to pursue my ambitions.

Almost 50 years ago, I read something about the Canadian Scholarship Trust in the newspaper and decided to investigate. I invested some money for my daughter, and some three years later, for my son. Everything worked out the way it was supposed to. MY daughter attended two universities in two countries over six years and my son spent six years in two universities. CST did everything they promised to do.
The 2008 meltdown had almost no effect on the CST bottom line. Being with CST was the right place to be.

My parents saved up with CST so that when I was ready for university the funds were there. Because my parents did it for me, it’s something that I want to do as well for my kids.

As a medical researcher who spent 13 years in training, I understand the financial challenges students encounter. I’ve seen many colleagues abandon their dreams due to the escalating costs of their education. We’re confident that investing in a Canadian Scholarship Trust Plan will be one of the best decisions we’ve ever made for our daughter.

Canadian Scholarship Trust Plans are a safe and effective way to save for post-secondary school. Our three children have all graduated now, and when my grandson was born recently, one of my first calls was to my CST Consultants sales representative to set up a plan for him too
