RDSP Tax Credit – Future Aid

RDSP Tax Credit

The Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) is a Canada-wide registered matched savings plan specific for people with disabilities. That also include health challenges that affect more than physical abilities alone.

It is a unique savings program that allows savings to grow in a tax-deferred environment and provides matching federal contributions of up to 300% annually. Canada is the first country in the world to have a RDSP, which helps those living with a disability and their families save for the future. An estimated 500,000 people across Canada will benefit from this initiative, and future impacts of the RDSP go well beyond a simple planning tool.

Plan for the Future

RDSP is the most powerful financial tool for Canadians with disabilities and their families to secure stability for the future. The biggest challenge has been getting the information out about the RDSP to the families who need it the most. The Plan Institute has a goal to inform families with disabilities about the RDSP in order to help them create a good life and a strong financial future. Workshops and tele-seminars are provided at no cost.

What will you get out of workshops?

You will learn the ins-and-outs of the RDSP, how to become eligible, open, manage and benefit from your own account. Sessions are held in a small group setting so that individual questions can easily be answered.
Designed for: Families and individuals with a disability, as well as professionals.

*Tele-seminars can be attended from anywhere by telephone or computer. Call-in info will be emailed to you after you have registered. All times listed are in Pacific Standard Time.
