Group Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA)

We can provide these additional services through other financial services partners. Please contact an advisor at your Caisse populaire to find out more about the following products.

A Group TFSA is a savings plan under which contributions aren’t tax deductible, but whose income, including capital gains, is tax-free, even when withdrawn. This means that the TFSA’s ability to shelter investment income from taxes is comparable to an RRSP or Registered Pension Plan (RPP).
