Registered Retirement Savings Plans

Benefits of an RRSP

There are many benefits of investing in an RRSP with Coastal Community. RRSP contributions are tax-deductible (lowering your taxable income) and help reduce the amount of tax you pay.  When you contribute to an RRSP, there’s a good chance you will receive a tax refund. Savvy savers use this refund to jump-start their savings and RRSP contribution for the coming year.  Plus, you’ll enjoy a tax-sheltered investment until it’s time to begin withdrawing your money.

When you invest with Coastal Community, you and your community benefit. How? Your deposits are reinvested as loans to local businesses, mortgages for Island homeowners, and help strengthen the communities where we live.
