Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA)

What is a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA)?

The TFSA is one of the best accounts for savings you can have. Anyone aged 18 or over can open a TFSA and save up to $5,500 tax-free. Withdrawals are tax-free too.


Tax free savings, every year

This registered savings account operates separately from your other tax allowances. Since withdrawals are also tax-free, they don't count as earned income and so won't affect the calculations of any government benefits you may receive such as OAS, GIS or Child Tax benefit.


How much can I save?

You can save up to $5,500 per year, and make as many withdrawals as you wish. However, even if you withdraw money, you can't put in more than the current TFSA contribution limit of $5,500 total in any tax year.


Key features of the TFSA

  • Tax free savings on up to $5,500
  • Tax free withdrawals, anytime
  • Available to anyone aged 18 or over with a valid social security number
  • Withdrawals do not affect federal benefits or credit test calculations


Tax-free savings for everyone

There are very few financial accounts that literally anyone can open, but the Tax-Free Savings Account is truly available to all. You can save as much or as little as you can afford, and if you don't use all of the $5,500 allowance in one year, you can use that allowance up in years when you can save more. If you decide to save more than the $5,500 limit, the balance over the limit will be taxed at just 1%.
