Accumulate more savings to pursue personal projects, TAX FREE

Place income generated by invested sums (existing investments, investment income, inheritances, donations, etc.) in a tax shelter account

Maximize your savings with retirement in mind

Simple and accessible
You can contribute up to $5,000 annually in a tax-free account, regardless of your income.

Tax free
Any earnings generated (interest, capital gains or dividends) in the TFSA, as well as sums withdrawn, are not taxable.

Ease of withdrawals
You can withdraw any amount at any time without penalty. *There is no restriction as to the use of withdrawals.

The TFSA investment instrument complements an RRSP as an efficient way to save and put more money toward your retirement.

No affect on income-based government benefits
