financial backup for life

Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs)

Tax-Free-Savings Accounts are the most misunderstood financial product out there. TFSAs are also an outstanding choice for members with pensions and for anyone who wants a more balanced and tax-efficient way to save for retirement.

  • TFSAs allow you to generate investment growth without triggering taxes. And unlike an RRSP, you can use your accumulated wealth in a TFSA without paying tax on it.
  • TFSAs fit medium to long-term financial strategies and complement pension plans (of all kinds).
  • Unlike RRSPs, there are no limits on how long you shelter the funds – so the TFSA helps you well into your later retirement years.
  • TFSA withdrawals are not included in your income and will not impact OAS payments.

Types of investments

Generally, the types of investments that are permitted in a TFSA are the same as those permitted in a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP).  These would include the following:

  • Cash
  • Mutual Funds*
  • Guaranteed Investment Certificates GIC
  • Bonds*
