Find out your current tax-free savings account (TFSA) contribution limit by using this calculator.

powered by

Tax-free savings account is a bit of a misnomer. While you can use it for straightforward savings, think of it more accurately as an investment holding account to store things like exchange-traded funds (ETFs), guaranteed investment certificates (GICs), bonds, stocks and, yes, plain old cash. While you do have to abide by the set amount of contribution room each year, any growth you earn on those investments will not affect your contribution room for the current year or years to come.

According to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), two types of fees are eligible to deduct:

“fees to manage or take care of your investments,”

and “fees, other than commissions, paid for advice on buying or selling a specific share or security by the taxpayer or for the administration or the management of the shares or securities of the taxpayer…
