Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP)

Maximize your retirement savings with tax benefits on your investments.

Why invest your money with RRSP

Contributions you make to your RRSP reduce your taxable income while your investments grow on a tax-deferred basis.

What is an RRSP?

RRSP helps you save for retirement. While there are several kinds of registered savings plans, they all have the same important feature: you don’t have to pay income tax on the money you earn from your investments while they’re in the plan.

How much can I contribute?

RRSP allows you to make tax-deductible contributions each year, either in a lump sum or through regular Pre-Authorized Contributions (PACs). The maximum you can contribute each year is set by the Canadian government and depends on your income. 

What else can I use the money for?

Funds in an RRSP are eligible for Canadian government programs that can help you buy your first home or pay for education for you, your spouse, or your common-law partner.

Building your RRSP

Your RRSP can contain a variety of investments, such as cash, mutual funds, and GICs. We can help you build an investment portfolio that’s right for you.
