  • FHSAs allow you to save money toward your down payment
  • Contribute up to $8,000 per year, to a maximum of $40,000.
  • Similar to a RRSP, contributions are tax deductible.
  • Similar to a TFSA, you will not be taxed when you withdraw the money for your first home down payment.
  • Any unused savings can be transferred to another registered account without a tax penalty.
