Canadian TFSA contribution limit 2021

A Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is a registered savings product that allows taxpayers to earn investment income tax-free.

TFSAs were first introduced in Canada in 2009, and are available at most Canadian financial institutions. A Tax-Free Saving Account allows any Canadian over the age of 18 to save or invest money without paying taxes on the gains made inside the account.

$6,000 can be contributed in 2021, and the unused contribution room can be carried forward. All TFSA contributions made during the year, including the replacement or re-contribution of withdrawals made from a TFSA, will count against your contribution room.
