There are many different investment, income and retirement options to choose from. Here’s a look at investment plans, accounts and products that can help you with your financial goals.

Registered investment & retirement plans

These government-registered plans and accounts let you grow your savings tax-free under certain terms and conditions.

Registered retirement savings plan (RRSP)

An RRSP can help you save for your retirement. Your contributions into this plan are tax-deductible. And, the amounts within your RRSP are tax-deferred until you make withdrawals or take income.

Tax-free savings account (TFSA)

A TFSA lets you save money for any purpose. Although contributions are not tax-deductible, your investments can grow tax-free and you can make withdrawals at any time without paying tax.

Registered education savings plan (RESP)

An RESP can help you save for a child's post-secondary education or training. Parents, grandparents and friends can contribute to an RESP. Plus, any investment income within the plan is tax-deferred until withdrawals are made.

Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF)

A RRIF is like a continuation of your RRSP where your funds are tax-deferred. But unlike an RRSP, a RRIF provides income during your retirement.

Life Income Fund (LIF)

A LIF is like a RRIF, but the funds in the plan come from a pension plan instead of RRSP contributions.
