Registration Deposit   
Maximum contribution for the 2020 tax year is $27,230, or 18% of your previous year’s earned income less any applicable adjustments*

Why get it

Based on your contribution and the tax rate you pay, you may be eligible for a tax refund and the amount you contribute is tax sheltered.

​The sooner you begin saving, the more years you have to accumulate compound interest on your savings.


Withdrawing

Any and all amounts withdrawn from the plan are subject to classification as taxable income. There are some exceptions and instances where funds may be withdrawn tax free, such as $25,000 for first-time home buyers.

​Please visit the Canadian Revenue Agency website for further details http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/
