No Age Limit

There’s no age limit to contributing to TFSAs; you can continue to invest even after the age of 71, the limit for RRSPs. The starting age for contributions is 18.

It's Tax Free

Investment income earned in a TFSA is tax-free, regardless of whether it is interest, dividends or capital gains. Withdraw money at any time for any reason without being taxed.

Generate Tax Free Income

TFSA withdrawals do not impact any government benefits or assistance programs such as child tax benefits, old age security or other guaranteed income supplements. This means low-income earners can generate tax-free income without it affecting their support.

They're Transferrable

TFSA assets can be transferred to a spouse without impacting the recipient’s contribution room.*

*Only possible upon death of account holder
