What goes into an RRSP?

You can include a variety of investments within your RRSP to match your investment style and make the most of your money.



Segregated funds & annuities

Term deposit

Term deposits grow your money faster than a savings account 

With flexible and fixed terms, higher interest rates, and 100% deposit insurance, term deposits help you reach your savings goals faster.

Investment Advice

Should I get an RRSP loan?

Getting an RRSP loan can help you catch up on your retirement savings and help boost your savings plan. RRSP loans offer low interest rates, extra payment options, and an annual cash rebate through the memberSHARE Loyalty Program.

With an RRSP loan you can also take advantage of the 60 day payment deferral option and push off your first loan payment until you receive your tax refund. It’s a savings win-win.

RRSPs can help you save on year-end taxes in your highest earning years and save for retirement. On the other hand, TFSAs allow you to grow your savings in a fully accessible tax-sheltered savings account. Consider a combination of both for a balanced savings plan that meets your short and long term goals.
