A better approach to retirement saving

Saving for your future is one of the smartest things you can do, but it’s not always easy to get there. With no fees, teaser rates, or fancy jargon, our RSP is not only a low-tax way to save, it’s a smart one, too—especially when you’re earning 2.30% interest* (please note: our rate will be changing to 1.25%* effective May 26th, 2021). Plus, you can open one online in minutes. It’s all designed to bring you closer to your retirement goals, faster.

Why open an RSP?

An RSP comes with some pretty sweet tax advantages. You get to deduct what you contribute from your taxable income that year. Plus, you won’t pay tax on the interest you earn. You will be taxed when you withdraw at retirement—but by then, you’ll likely be in a lower tax bracket.

How our RSP stacks up

Make your money grow—fast
