Are my children`s RESP`s safe from creditors if I am the subscriber and my
wife is a joint subscriber and my child is the nominee?

RESP’s are not considered exempt when a bankruptcy is filed. Meaning that the RESP’s would be lost and distributed amongst your creditors. However, if they are held jointly by you and your wife, then only 50% of these RESP’s are considered yours and therefore only 50% of them are lost.
