What's a TFSA?

A Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) helps you grow your savings without having to pay taxes on the interest or investment income you earn.


  • Canadian residents, 18 and over, can contribute up to the 2019 dollar limit of $6,000 and any unused contribution room from prior years. This means if you never had a TFSA, were at least 18 in 2009 and have been a Canadian resident since then, you can contribute up to $63,500 where it can grow tax free!
  • You pay no taxes on the interest or investment income you earn (as long as you have followed the rules)
  • You pay no taxes on withdrawals from your TFSA
  • You can re-contribute the amount of your withdrawal the following calendar year or carry it forward to later years. (This does not apply to withdrawals to correct over-contributions)
  • TFSA contributions are not tax-deductible, unlike RRSPs
  • Choose from a wide selection of savings and investment products for your TFSA contributions. These include the CIBC Tax Advantage Savings Account and investments such as GICs, mutual funds and stocks

Why a TFSA?

A TFSA allows you to earn tax-free interest and investment income as you build your savings for the long, medium or short term.

Unlike an RRSP, which is not meant to be accessed until your retirement, a TFSA allows you to withdraw your savings if the need arises, without paying tax. Plus, you can re-contribute the amount of your withdrawal the very next year.

Speak with a CIBC financial advisor about how a TFSA can help you meet your savings and investment needs.
