Tax-Free Savings Account - Rules and Options


The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is considered one of the most important savings vehicles for Canadians next to the Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). Canadian adults have the opportunity to save money in qualified investment vehicles and have those savings grow tax-free throughout their lifetime. Given the mass appeal of the TFSA, it is essential for financial professionals to understand its details and benefits for their clients.
