Reach your goals faster with a TFSA.

​​A Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) will help you save money for short and long-term goals. Because it’s tax-free, you pay no taxes on the interest or investment income earned.​

The contribution amount for 2021 is $6,000.


​What is a TFSA?

Any Canadian, 18 years or older can contribute to a TFSA.

Interest earned in a TFSA is NOT reported on your T5- Statement of Investment Income.

Contributions are NOT tax deductible.

Contributions can only be in the name of one owner.

Withdrawals of contributions and/or interest income are not taxable.

Withdrawals of contributions and/or interest income will increase the unused contribution room in the following calendar year. Re-contribution   in the same year may result in an over-contribution amount, which is subject to a penalty tax.

Unused contribution room can be carried forward. If you don't contribute the maximum amount in a given year, you can carry forward your   unused contribution room indefinitely.

For example, if you contribute $3,000 to your TFSA in 2009, your contribution room for 2010 will be $7,000 ($2,000 carried forward from 2009 plus $5,000 for 2010).

TFSAs are separately insured for their full amount by Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA)
