TAX FREE SAVINGS 

​​Reach your goals faster with a Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA).

A TFSA will help you save money for short and long-term goals. 
Because it’s tax-free, you pay no taxes on the interest or
​investment income earned.

​Enjoy the benefits of a TFSA:

TFSAs were introduced by the federal government to encourage people to save, tax free.  TFSAs are available in a variety of deposit options to suit your needs.  Best of all, you can withdraw this money from your plan without tax consequences.  A TFSA should be part of almost anyone's financial portfolio since it is a great solution for a variety of purposes. 

  • ​Grow your money – Because your TFSA is tax free, your earnings will be tax sheltered.

  • Use it for short and long-term goals – You don’t have to repay a TFSA withdrawal.

  • ​Carry over withdrawals – Any withdrawal you make adds extra contribution room the following year.

  • It can hold a number of investments – Term deposits, mutual funds and stocks included.

  • Contribute for as long as you have contribution room – Unlike the RRSP, the TFSA contribution limit is not tied to your income or age, so you can contribute to your TFSA for as long as you have contribution room.  Any individual that is a resident of Canada, 18 years of age or older, and has a valid SIN is eligible to open a TFSA.

  • Unused contribution room can be carried to future years.  Contribution amounts are set annually by the federal government.
