Hello Tomoko, Thank you for your inquiry.
For individual RESPs, such as our Flex First Plan and our Family Single Student plan, there are no further program qualifications beyond what is required under the Income Tax Act.  Under the Income Tax Act, a student is eligible to receive an Educational  Assistance Payment when enrolled in a recognized institution and program. Please email contact@kff.ca to confirm details specific to your plan.
