The deadline to contribute to your RRSP for the 2016 tax year is March 1, 2017. It’s a good idea to NOT wait right to the end.
Also, a reminder that the 2017 TFSA limit is $5,500 and your lifetime maximum contribution is now $52,000. Many are under the false impression that only Banks offer TFSAs. We can help you with your TFSA and offer a much broader range of investment options and better returns than a simple GIC.
