TFSA (TAX-FREE SAVINGS ACCOUNT)

Carry out your projects and save tax-free

Pay less tax. Music to your ears? Imagine all you can do with tax-free savings:

  • Take a trip
  • Take a year off
  • Renovate the house
  • Buy a car
  • Retire early
  • Spoil your family and yourself!

Whatever your budget, big or small, you can start contributing to it from the age of 19 and continue to invest in it all your life.

The TFSA is also very useful as an emergency fund to deal with unforeseen expenses such as a leaking roof or a broken car, or to pay for everyday expenses if you lose your job.

Double tax advantage: deposits in a TFSA grow tax-free and withdrawals are never taxable.

Since its creation in 2009, the TFSA has been a great success. It is the ideal complement to the RRSP. However, its workings are often misunderstood and the question is frequently asked: TFSA or RRSP? Which of these two savings tools is right for you?

Time is money! Start saving early.

When it comes to TFSAs or RRSPs, the earlier you start saving, the more your investments grow, making the financial effort much easier. The effect of compound interest thus acts over a longer period.

Make life easier by saving in simple instalments! You choose the amount you want to invest and determine the frequency: weekly, biweekly, or monthly. This will help you adopt good savings habits, and voilà! See the result!

Calculation example based on a rate of 4% compounded annually and based on a balanced portfolio.
