A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a retirement investment plan registered with the government to which you or your spouse can contribute through RRSP-eligible investments, such as some stocks and mutual funds. For information on what investments are RRSP eligible, please contact a financial advisor and/or your financial institution.

Deductible RRSP contributions can be used as a means to reduce your taxes. Amounts earned in the RRSP investment is usually exempt from tax for the time the funds remain in the plan. When you cash in or receive payments from the plan (typically at retirement) you will then pay tax on those amounts.
