A RRSP, or Registered Retirement Savings Plan, is a government sanctioned account that allows you to save for retirement while deferring the tax you would pay on those savings until you take the money out. Most people will be subject to lower taxes in retirement than in their working years, making it an account that helps you to save money in more than one way.

Tax Benefits

Any deposits into the account can be deducted from your taxable income at the end of the year, up to the maximum contribution limit. Also, any gains your investments earns within this account are tax free until the money is withdrawn, in which case you are taxed on the full amount you withdraw.

Contribution Limits

The maximum contribution limit in 2016 is $25,370.00. However, if you have unused contribution room from last year, you can carry it forward. Your contribution limit will be listed on your tax assessment that you receive from the CRA annually. Any contributions over the limit on your assessment are subject to tax of 1% per month. You can only keep a RRSP up to the age of 71, at which point the money must either be withdrawn or rolled over into a RRIF. This account can be used with certain term deposits, or our Wealth Management products, to get you a maximum return.
