What should those just entering their careers, moving out on their own and aspiring for more financial independence do right now?

I graduated in the midst of the 2009 recession, and I remember how challenging it was to find a full-time job. With my networking skills, I was able to land a full-time role in the hospitality industry.

Putting money into a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) is one of the best ways to save for retirement. Some people choose to contribute a lump sum to their RRSP at the beginning of the year (or right ahead of the tax-filing deadline), while others prefer to contribute regularly through automatic withdrawals or deposits. Whichever option you choose, be aware that there’s a limit to how much you can add to your RRSP in any given year. The RRSP contribution room calculator above will get you the numbers you need, but keep reading for a better understanding of RRSPs.
