I have an RESP - go to school full time. Pay my own tuition, car, rent. Parents contribute zero. I do not get osap either because of family income. Luckily I just barely get tuition rebate.
System is extremely broken. It punishes you for planning ahead and saving for education while it rewards the poor with interest free money. Its crazy how so many of my friends are not doing any work, living off OSAP and then plan to not pay loan after.
