A Good Video to Explain a TFSA

What About a TFSA?

Tax Free Savings Accounts

Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) are pretty much perfect. As the name says, any growth, whether interest or capital gains, is tax-free when you make a withdrawal from your TFSA. Whether you need emergency funds, or a tax strategy to avoid being over-taxed on gratuities, TFSAs allow you that flexibility.
