It Is Never Too Early To Start Planning For Your Future

An RRSP, or Registered Retirement Savings Plan, is a government approved plan that allows you to save money for your retirement years.  Your contributions are tax deductible (within certain limits), and the income earned is tax sheltered.

Anyone with "earned income" subject to Canadian taxation, including non-residents may contribute to an RRSP.  Even if you are not taxable, you should file a tax return to report your earned income and create RRSP deduction room.

Contributions to your RRSP are made during your peak earning years, when you can most afford it.  Not only are you investing money that would otherwise be paid in taxes, but the earnings are not taxed until you withdraw them.

The growth of your RRSP increases rapidly over the years as it is reinvested and compounded.  The sooner you start your contributions, the bigger the results will be; building you a more comfortable retirement fund.
