Now you can save for your future tax-free
A Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) will help you save for any short or long-term goal, from automobiles to vacations to home renovations. With a TFSA, millions of Canadians are now able to manage their savings in a tax-efficient way.
Insurable deposits in registered accounts have unlimited deposit insurance coverage.
The benefits of a TFSA
Grow your money – Save up to $6,000 a year out of after-tax income and pay no further taxes on the investment returns on those funds.
No age limit – Unlike RRSPs, there is no age limit for contributing to a TFSA.
Choose your short or long-term goals – TFSA withdrawals are not added to annual income and don’t have to be repaid.
Couldn't contribute this year? – Unused contribution room can be carried forward to future years indefinitely.
Withdraw whenever you choose – Any withdrawal frees up contribution room, offering full flexibility to re-contribute the same amount in future years.
Hold a number of investments – Qualified investment such as term deposits, investment savings accounts, stocks and mutual funds can be held in your TFSA.
