How is a TFSA different from an RSP?

An RSP is designed specifically to provide you with income after you retire. Your contribution limit is based on your income and the contributions you make are tax-deductible, but you do pay tax on the money when you receive it as income.

A TFSA is not designed specifically for retirement, but to help you save money for a wide range of goals. The amount you can contribute is not based on your income and your contributions are not tax-deductible. You can withdraw your money any time you want it, and you don’t pay tax on those withdrawals. You also don’t lose contribution room when you make a withdrawal – you can recontribute that amount to your TFSA the following year or any year after that.
