How do I request to redeem shares in my RRSP+ with the Fonds?
Tax credit reminder
If you meet the conditions set out in the prospectus, you are eligible for tax credits of 30%1 for labour-sponsored funds until the end of the tax year in which you turn 64 years of age. Note that by withdrawing your savings from the Fonds, in whole or in part, for retirement or disability purposes, you will no longer be eligible for these 30% tax credits on future contributions. This represents an additional tax savings of up to $1,500 per year until the end of the fiscal year in which you turn 64.1
