Issue 50 – Save for your future by contributing to an RRSP and TFSA

RRSP Benefits:
• RRSP contributions are a good way to reduce your taxable income
• Your investments grow tax deferred while held in your RRSP
• When you retire you can use your RRSP to receive regular income
• A spousal RRSP can reduce your combined tax burden
• You can borrow from your RRSP to buy your first home or pay for your education

TFSA Benefits:
• TFSA investments grow tax free (Interest, capital gains and dividends are tax exempt)
• Withdrawals can be made whenever you wish and unlike an RRSP, they are tax-free
• TFSA contribution limits are not reduced following a withdrawal
• Withdrawals can be re-contributed in a subsequent calendar year(s)
