I've got $ 5,000 stuck in an RESP and two kids who have no plans to go back for further education.
there are books written on the topic and so the best advice is don't assume the government's intentions are all noble

If you start DRiPs for you nephew, at $100 a year you could pick two stocks, e.g. a bank and a pipeline. The risk at the end is that the kid gets control of the account when he turns 18, and he does not have so spend it on something wise. He could sell the stocks and gamble the proceeds away for example. We shall see...
