Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP) - An RRSP is a government approved plan through which you can accumulate money for your retirement. Anyone with earned income can contribute to an RRSP. These contributions, within limits, reduce your taxable income for year you contribute, and the income earned on the investment while it is held in the registered retirement investment is tax sheltered until withdrawn from the registered plan. A registered retirement savings plan allows you to invest money during your peak earning years, to build for a comfortable retirement fund. RRSP’s are available in all types of investment vehicles: Term Deposits, Mutual Funds, Stocks and Shares, whatever type of investment meets your financial investment goals.
You may also deposit for a spouse into an RRSP. This type of deposit is known as a spousal RRSP. It will reduce your taxable income for the year you contribute but build a retirement income for your spouse. The spouse will then be taxed on the income from the plan when they withdraw it. This is a great way to split income with a lower income spouse at retirement and pay less income tax on these funds. Some conditions apply to these types of plans so be sure you ask us for all the details
