An RRSP is a savings plan to encourage Canadians to save money for retirement.

The investment and the interest earned on the RRSP is sheltered meaning it will not be taxed as long as the funds remain in the plan.

An RRSP allows you to defer paying tax on funds you contribute. You get a tax deduction for the amount you contribute.

Tax free savings accounts tfsa l.jpg

You must withdraw a minimum amount from your RRIF every year based on a formula that includes your age and the amount of capital.
