RRSP Maxi-Loan

No RRSP contributions for a year could mean hundreds of dollars less come retirement! Perhaps you wish to apply for an RRSP loan but feel uncomfortable with repayment of the principal and interest at a specific date?

What should you do?
 
There is always a solution! The Maxi-RRSP loan is a financing product that will allow you to maximize your RRSP contributions while offering you a grace period to reimburse the principal and interests at a given date.

Why use a Maxi-RRSP loan?

When cash is short to contribute to your RRSP, the RRSP loan is your way of saying hello to income tax returns. Being strapped for cash is no reason not to contribute the maximum to your RRSP every year. In addition to maximizing your retirement income, the contribution will also be repaid in part using the tax return. Your retirement income will be all the more comfortable thanks to the extra amount that your loan will have allowed you to contribute.
