What is a TFSA?

A TFSA is a government-sponsored account where any money earned inside is not taxed. That means when you earn interest, a dividend or the value of a mutual fund* goes up, you get to keep all of the money you made tax free.

How Does it Work?

Every year you can contribute more money to your TFSA. You can add up to $6,500 in 2023 for a maximum of $88,000 in your lifetime, so far. You’re allowed to withdraw money anytime and can put it all back in the following year if you want.
