Tax-Free Savings Accounts
Earn more for yourself. Shield your investments from tax.
Introduced in 2009 by the Government of Canada, TFSAs allow you to set money aside throughout your lifetime and earn on these investments without being taxed on them.
Incredibly versatile, TFSAs can be withdrawn at any time without being taxed. This makes them a great option for short-term savings like a vacation or an emergency fund.
TFSAs are also great for long-term savings because the interest, dividends, and capital gains earned in a TFSA are tax-free for life. Eligible investments for a TFSA could include term deposits, mutual funds, bonds, and more.
Why choose a TFSA?
Start saving early.
A TFSA can be a great place to start investing. If you’re the age of majority in your province and have a valid social insurance number, you should be eligible for a TFSA.
Invest & earn tax-free.
Any amount deposited into the account within the contribution limit—as well as any income earned from interest, investment, and capital gains—is not taxed throughout your lifetime.
The TFSA allows you the freedom to take out your funds at any time for whatever you need, without being taxed—and you can re-contribute them the following year.
