Choosing the best savings account for your personal goals

With increased flexibility and self-serve options, saving can be easy. Not sure which type of savings account is right for you? Whether you are saving for your child’s education or simply want to grow your investment portfolio, our team will work with you to determine the best choice for your unique needs and financial goals.

TFSAs

A tax-free savings account, or TFSA, is a registered investment program. With this type of account, you can contribute up to $5,500 a year* and choose the types of investments you want to make.

Key features:

  • You don’t pax tax on the money you earn
  • You can withdraw funds at any time without penalty
  • You can re-contribute money that you withdraw

To find out if a TFSA is right for you, speak to one of our advisors today.

*you can make up contributions you may have missed since the program started in 2009

RESPs

A registered education savings plan, or RESP, allows family members to save for child’s post-secondary education. With rising education costs, this type of tax-sheltered savings account helps you plan ahead for your children’s future.

Key features:

  • Can be set up for any beneficiary—children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or family friends
  • You could be eligible for additional government grants and incentives
  • Your savings grow tax-free in the plan

An RESP is a great way to give your children a head start while helping you stick to a savings plan. Contact us today to get in touch with an expert advisor, who will get to know your specific financial goals and help you put together a plan to reach them.

Non-Registered Investments

Unlike registered investments, non-registered investments have fewer restrictions; you can invest as much money as you like, in the investment types that you prefer. These plans aren’t tax sheltered, so you need to report any income you earn on your tax returns.

You may prefer this type of investment if:

  • You’ve maxed out your RRSP and TFSA contributions
  • You want to have more control over where and how you invest
  • You want to save for something short-term
  • You want greater liquidity
  • You’d like to save for children or grandchildren with an in-trust account

If you want greater flexibility over your savings, a non-registered investment may be right for you. Our team of expert advisors can help you gain a better understanding of your options — contact us today.
