RRSP and TFSA Ready Twitter Party!

Time to start thinking about RRSPs and TFSAs

It’s that time of year again. If you are going to make a contribution towards your RRSP you need to do so by March 1, 2018. Now is an RRSP the right place to put your money – or should consider a TFSA? The first RRSP was created by the federal government in 1957. TFSAs are much newer and have only been around since 2009. So now you have an additional choice to help you save money.  RRSP stands for registered retirement savings plan and TFSA stands for tax-free savings plan.


The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) program began in 2009. It is a way for individuals who are 18 and older and who have a valid social insurance number to set money aside tax-free throughout their lifetime. Contributions to a TFSA are not deductible for income tax purposes. Any amount contributed as well as any income earned in the account (for example, investment income and capital gains) is generally tax-free, even when it is withdrawn.  Administrative or other fees in relation to TFSA and any interest or money borrowed to contribute to a TFSA are not deductible. For more information about TFSAs, visit the Government of Canada website.

If you are less familiar with TFSAs, then should like this infographic as much as I do. It is the top 4 things you should know about TFSAs.
