What is a RRSP?
A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) allows you to create a custom portfolio of investments to save for your retirement. Contributions are tax-deductible and grow tax free until they’re withdrawn from the plan.
No Minimum Balance
- No minimum balance required.
- Safe and secure – eligible deposits are insured up to the maximum amount through the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC)
