Investment strategies have changed over the years and have evolved into easy to understand and low risk methods. Younger people prefer to take a more laid-back approach to their investments while at the same time wanting to reap benefits quickly. A Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) or a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) can help in the long run.

The Tax-Free Savings Account is an account available in Canada that provides tax benefits for saving. Investment income, including capital gains and dividends, earned in a TFSA is not taxed in most cases, even when withdrawn.

A RRSP is a special type of investment account designed to help Canadians save for retirement. Its main advantage, as compared to a regular investment account, is the tax benefits it offers.
