Contribute early and regularly to your RRSP

It’s no secret: A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) plays a key role in retirement planning. But did you know that you can increase your investment returns by contributing earlier in the year?

If you start contributing to your RRSP annually on January 1, it provides more time for your money to grow, making a significant difference on your retirement savings. Monthly contributions are also a great option, particularly if your budget won’t allow for one large contribution at the beginning of the year.
