Why open an FHSA?

An easy way to save more
The FHSA is tailor-made to assist you in purchasing your first home. With its tax-free savings structure, you can watch your savings grow steadily toward homeownership without the burden of taxation.
Benefit now through tax deductions
Enjoy the benefit of tax deductions on your contributions, reducing your taxable income for the year. This means more money in your pocket to invest in your future home.
Flexibility
Your FHSA contributions aren't limited to just a down payment. Should your plans change, you have the flexibility to transfer the funds to an RRSP or RRIF without impacting your contribution room.
