Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA)

Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA)

In less than 10 years, the TFSA has replaced the RRSP as the primary savings vehicle in Canada. According to Statistics Canada, Canadian households in lower tax brackets (lower incomes) should consider the TFSA first, then move on to an RRSP, based on available savings.

Whether its for an emergency fund or to save for a special project, the TFSA is an excellent instrument to grow your savings tax-free.

Because your situation is unique, our financial security advisors can help you determine your needs and help you find the best solution for your situation.

Save for your projects

The strength of the TFSA is its flexibility. Whether its for a long-term project like a vacation or a short-term need, like buying a television, there is no restrictions on withdrawals.

An excellent emergency fund

A tax-free savings account allows you to put money aside and watch it grow tax-free. This money can be used as a cushion in case of emergency, like losing a job or for an unexpected expense like car or house repairs.
