Start saving while making the most of life!
Because saving doesn't have to feel like a sacrifice.
If you want to start saving, no amount is too small
The sound management of your finances and savings starts with your first contribution. Whether you're eyeing a major purchase, wanting to have a cushion to fall back on, or just want to be able to treat yourself to small luxuries, saving will allow you to carry out all kinds of projects.
You know what they say—time is money! The sooner you start saving, the more your money will work for you and the easier it will be to reach your goals.
Automatic savings, a strategy that pays off
If budgeting is a great strategy you can use to achieve your financial goals, automatic savings are your most valuable player. You can automate your contributions by setting aside a certain amount of money on a regular basis.

The RRSP: Plan for the future while reducing your taxable income today
The Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a very tax-efficient savings vehicle, since the amounts you contribute are fully tax-deductible. What's more, in addition to playing a vital role in your retirement savings plan, this account can also be used to carry out projects such as buying a home with the HBP or going back to school as part of the LLP.

Start saving with a TFSA
The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is much more than a savings account! It's a flexible savings vehicle that can help you save throughout every stage of your life. By starting to save today, you'll have the tools you need to carry out your medium- or long-term projects. The TFSA is perfect for this.

If you contribute $2,000 per year for 20 years, you'll save $40,000. At an annual return rate of 3.5%*, you will have accumulated $56,559.
On the other hand, if you save $1,000 per year for 40 years at the same rate of return, that $40,000 will yield $84,550. That's about $28,000 more for the same amount contributed.
