Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)


Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is a Federal Government introduced  registered savings product that allows taxpayers to earn investment income  tax-free. A TFSA allows Canadian Residents age 18 to set money aside in  eligible savings accounts or investment vehicles and watch those savings grow  tax-free throughout their lifetime. The  TFSA is offered to complement existing registered products such as the RRSP and RESP, which  have a more defined purpose (saving for retirement and post-secondary education  costs respectively).

TFSA contribution room

Your TFSA contribution room is the maximum amount that you can contribute to your TFSA.

Starting in 2009, TFSA contribution room accumulates every year, if at any time in the calendar year you are 18 years of age or older, have a valid Canadian social insurance number and are a resident of Canada.
