Can a spouse and former spouse be joint subscribers under an RESP?

Under the Income Tax Act, an Individual RESP plan with joint subscribers is not required to be divided between the parties following a separation or divorce. If you and your former spouse previously entered into an RESP contract as joint subscribers while married, you and your ex-spouse can both remain as joint subscribers post-separation and divorce, and contribute independently.
