RRSP Loans

Pay less income tax.
Save for retirement.
Grow your savings faster.

An RRSP Line of Credit can make sense.

Life happens, like unexpected bills and added expenses. Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with the money to save for your retirement.

An RRSP contribution is one of the best ways to build your retirement savings and if you are finding it difficult to make or maximize your contribution, an RRSP line of credit can definitely help.

Contributing using an RRSP Line of Credit may help you get there faster by:
  • Reducing your taxable income
  • Generating a potential tax refund
  • Catching up on unused contribution room
  • Growing your savings for retirement


  • Establish a RRSP loan credit limit and then, with one phone call, borrow up to that limit for RRSPs every year without re-applying
  • Use your tax refund to pay off your loan - you can wait up to 90 days to begin repaying your loan
  • Receive your tax receipt the day you make your contribution.
  • Borrow up to your maximum eligible RRSP contribution per year as defined by Revenue Canada
  • Pay off your loan at any time
