      • $1,000 invested at 1 year rate, redeemable in 1 year
      • $1,000 invested at 2 year rate, redeemable in 2 years
      • $1,000 invested at 3 year rate, redeemable in 3 years

Registered Wealth Accumulator Account

All it takes is the first step. Getting started with paying yourself first is simple with our RRSP or TFSA Wealth Accumulator. All you need is $25 and our Wealth Accumulator account to get started. From there, you choose:
    • a savings goal
    • an investment schedule (weekly, biweekly, monthly, semi-monthly, etc.)
    • when you want to make your payments
    • the amount of your payment
    • length of the term (12-71 months)
We’ll take it from there. With your regular payments automatically debited from your personal account pack, you'll see your investment grow. Great news! If you find a few extra dollars, you can reach your savings goal even faster by making additional deposits.
