Term Deposits/GICs

Term Deposits and Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs) earn higher interest than regular savings accounts and can help you make the most of your money during your investment time horizon.

TFSAs

The Tax-Free Savings Account is the newest investment vehicle available to meet your short-term and long-term goals.  Contributions and earnings are not taxable, and you don't even pay taxes when you withdraw your money.

RRSPs

Registered Retirement Savings Plans are among the most popular long-term investment vehicles because of their significant tax advantages.

Spousal RRSPs

Spousal RRSPs are similar to individual RRSPs except that designated contributions go into a spousal RRSP plan in your spouse’s name instead of your own, yet you may deduct the amount from your own taxable income.

RESPs

A Registered Education Savings Plan can help you save for your child’s education. All income earned is tax-sheltered until withdrawn to pay for post-secondary tuition, books and expenses. Plus, the federal government will top up your contributions with grants up to an annual and lifetime maximum.

RRIFs

A Registered Retirement Income Fund provides an income at retirement. Although you may set up a RRIF at any age, it is mandatory at age 71 when you must convert a maturing RRSP to a RRIF.
