The Tax Free Savings Account
Which do you prefer?
If you’re not already contributing to your TFSA – it’s a good time to start. The Tax-free nature of the account amplifies the effect of compounding growth – meaning your hard earned money grows faster inside a TFSA than in a taxable investment account.
Assumptions used in illustration: 32% Tax Rate, Rate of Return of 6%, Contribution of $5000 at the beginning of each period.
Save for whatever goal you want within a TFSA!

A TFSA is a type of investment account that provides investors with greater flexibility and tax benefits. Contributions to a TFSA, unlike an RRSP, are not tax-deductible, however returns (interest, dividends, or capital gains) within a TFSA are not taxed, even when withdrawn.
Simply put, tax-free growth and withdrawals make a TFSA an attractive option for those saving up for a car, home, or vacation.

Recontributing is Permitted
