What is an RRSP?

A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a government regulated investment account available to most Canadians.  An RSP helps to maximize your retirement savings since the money you earn compounds tax free until it is withdrawn.  Any amount contributed to an RSP is deducted from your income.


What are the benefits of an RRSP?


Not only do you invest money that would otherwise be paid in taxes, but the earnings of your plan are not taxed until you withdraw them.

Tax Savings

When you contribute money to your RRSP you can reduce your taxable income for that year which means you would pay less at income tax time.

Investment Possibilities

There are many different investment options in a RSP that include cash, GIC’s and mutual funds*.

RRSP Flexibility

You are able to borrow from your RRSP for some of life’s major events such as buying your first home through the Home Buyers Plan and pursing an education using the Life Long Learning Plan.


RRSP Options

Deposit Type Plans

Are the most common plans. They offer familiar savings options including savings accounts, term deposits, or guaranteed investment certificates. The rate of interest may be variable, fixed or index-linked.

Mutual Funds*

Money Market Fund - Invested in short-term securities such as treasury bills, and government and corporate notes.  Income funds - Same investment as money market funds but predominately invested in longer-term bonds & mortgages.  Equity - Invests primarily in stocks.

Self-Directed Plans

With this kind of plan you can make all your own investment decisions within a wide range of qualified investments.

Group (Employer Sponsored Plans)

A Group RRSP is a collection of individual RRSPs offered to employees by their sponsoring employer.


Contributing to an RRSP

Any Canadian up until age 71 who earns income or still has contribution room available may contribute to a RRSP.  Even if you are not taxable, you should file a tax return to report your earned income and create RRSP contribution room.

Contributions can be made any time during the year. Contributions made in the first 60 days of any year may be deducted from income of the prior tax year, current year or future year.
