Tax-Free Savings Account

TFSA allows taxpayers to set money aside in eligible investment vehicles and watch those savings grow tax-free throughout their lifetime. There are no restrictions on the way the funds may by used.
  • The TFSA is available to Canadians 18 years of age and older
  • Investment income earned in the account is not taxed
  •  Each year, beginning in 2009, maximum contribution limits were $5,000. In 2013 the contribution room was adjusted to $5,500. Briefly in 2015, the deposit limit was raised to $10,000 but in 2016, the limit was reduced again to $5,500. Total contribution room since Tax Free Savings Accounts became available and to the end of 2017 is $52,000.
  • Unused contribution room can be carried forward indefinitely
  • You can withdraw funds from the TFSA at any time for any purpose although transfers or withdrawals may be restricted based on selected investment terms.
  • While contributions are not tax-deductible, tax-free withdrawals can be made anytime.
  • Any withdrawals from the plan add to future contribution room in the following year, letting you replace whatever you withdrew.
  • Neither income earned in a TFSA nor withdrawals will affect your eligibility for federal income-tested benefits and credits, such as the Guaranteed Income Supplement and the Canada Child Tax Benefit.
  • Contributions to a spouse’s TFSA are allowed and TFSA assets can be transferred to a spouse upon death.
