- RRSPs are voluntary, individual, defined contribution savings plans. Employers may provide a "group RRSP" for employees, and may remit a share of contributions on behalf of their employees.
- Contributions to RRSPs are deductible from income for tax purposes and investment income earned in these plans is not subject to income tax. Payments and withdrawals from these plans are included in income for tax purposes. The deferral of tax provided on RRSP savings encourages and assists Canadians to save in order to meet their retirement income objectives.
- The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), introduced by the Harper Government in 2009, is a tax-assisted general-purpose savings account that may be used for any savings purpose, including saving for retirement. TFSA contributions are not deductible; however, investment income and withdrawals are tax-free. In addition, neither TFSA investment income nor withdrawals affect eligibility for federal income-tested benefits and credits, such as Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement benefits
