If you file for bankruptcy any RESP’s that you have set aside will be lost. The ultimately will be liquidated and the proceeds will be distributed among your unsecured creditors.

While I may not agree with how these funds are treated in a bankruptcy, the laws are very clear on this, RESP’s do not constitute true trust property and due to the way they have been set up the funds are lost.
