Registered Retirement Savings Plans

Start saving for the retirement you deserve.

What will your retirement look like? One thing we can be fairly certain of is that having more retirement savings will inherently give you more enjoyment in retirement.

Saving for retirement is one of the most effortless parts of a financial plan to implement, and a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is one of the best ways to do so.

It’s incredibly easy to start investing in an RRSP, and once you set up automatic transfers you virtually don’t have to do anything except watch your savings grow!

With Access Credit Union, you can relax knowing your RRSP investments are working for you. With great rates and expert advice, we'll help you plan for the future you deserve.

Why choose an RRSP?


Get a break on your income taxes.

Not only do your RRSP investments grow tax-free, but you also get a break on your income taxes the year you contribute the money. Any money you contribute to your RRSP within the limit is deducted from your taxable income!

Compound your retirement savings.

Many make excuses for not starting an RRSP right away, but it should be the top priority of any financial plan. The earlier you start saving, the larger your retirement income will be thanks to the incredible power of compound interest.

Withdraw to borrow for special life events.

While your RRSP funds generally should not be touched until retirement, you are able to withdraw funds in order to “borrow from yourself” for certain life events through the Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP) or the Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP).
