Why invest in a RRSP?

RRSPs allow you to save significant money on income tax in your working years when your Marginal Tax Rate (MTR) is highest, and allows your investments to grow tax free until retirement when you’ll pay less tax on withdrawals. This week on Finance Friday, Dave Schurman discusses the benefits of the Registered Retirement Savings Plan.
