Start saving, and continue making the most of your life!
Start saving for less without the stress with the RRSP+.
Do something positive with your savings
Here are a few ideas to turn what can seem a dull action into a rewarding result.
Start saving automatically.
Set up a periodic bank transfer to an RRSP+. This approach pays off even if you save as little as $20, $25 or $50 at a time. In just a few weeks, without really noticing it, you'll have acquired a new savings habit that will serve you well throughout your life.
When you choose the Fonds, you're making a socially responsible investment in support of corporate citizens that respect their workers.
You often hear the question: “Is it really better to start saving early?”
Say you contribute $1,500 a year to your RRSP+ starting at age 25 and continue to do so for 30 years. The money will grow over time since it's tax sheltered (it's in your RRSP after all!). Given an average annual return of 3%*, you'll have saved $71,363 by the time you're 55.
If you wait until your early forties to save the same $45,000 by contributing $3,000 a year for 15 years at the same average annual return of 3%, you'll have $55,797 when you're 55, or about 25% less!
