TFSAs

Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) were introduced by the Government of Canada in 2009 as an alternative savings product. If you are 18 years of age or older, have a valid Canadian social insurance number and are a resident of Canada you are qualified to contribute to a TFSA.There is an annual limit which is set by the CRA for contributions. Unused TFSA contribution room can be carried forward and accumulates in future years. Withdrawals from a TFSA are tax-free and you can put funds back into your TFSA in future years. Over contributions or re-contributing too soon after withdrawing can trigger over contribution penalties. Open variable rate plans are available – if you have ongoing deposits throughout the year this is perfect for you

•    Available GIC terms from 1 to 5 years
