RRSP – Registered Retirement Savings Plan

Registered retirement savings plan (RRSP)

With an RRSP, you will save for retirement while saving on your taxes every year in which you make contributions. According to Statistics Canada, for households in higher tax brackets (higher incomes), an RRSP would be more profitable than a TFSA and should be maximized first.1

Because your situation is unique, our financial security advisors can help you determine your needs and help you find the best solution for your situation.

Discover the benefits of an RRSP

  • Grow your savings tax-free: your contributions and the earnings they generate are not taxed as long as they stay in the RRSP.
  • Contributions are deducted in full from your taxable income, which entitles you to tax refunds.
  • The sums accumulated can be used for retirement, but also to buy or build a home, thanks to the Home Buyers' Plan, or to pay for your education if you go back to school thanks to the Lifelong Learning Plan.
