What is a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) and how does it work? 

Here is some useful information about TFSAs:

  • The TFSA is a government-registered account. It allows you to grow your savings tax-free, regardless of your annual income.
  • Withdrawals are tax-free.
  • Unused contribution room can be carried forward to future years.
  • You can withdraw money from your TFSA at any time and for any purpose.
  • You can contribute amounts withdrawn from your TFSA in the year following the withdrawal without reducing your contribution room.
  • Neither income earned in a TFSA nor withdrawals from the account affect your entitlement to federal income-tested benefits or credits.
