Registered Retirement Savings Plans are long-term investment option. RRSPs are a great way to cut down on a current year's tax bill as contribitions are tax-deferred and will only be taxed upon withdrawal.

Tax Free Savings Accounts
So much more than a savings account, TFSAs are a registered investment option that lets you earn tax-free income, making them a great addition to your retirement plan or to save for a short-term goal like a vacation or a large purchase.

Term Deposits (GICs)
With a GIC, you are promised a guaranteed interest rate over a period of time (term). Valley Credit Union offers GICs as a secure, worry-free investment option for long-term funds in term deposits of 1- 5 years. 

RRSPs "terminate" at the end of the calendar year in which you turn age 71. Convert your RRSP to a RRIF to manage your retirement income wisely.

Registered Education Savings Plans are special tax-sheltered savings account that allows you to save for a child’s post-secondary education.
