If you don't use all your contribution room one year, it also carries forward so you can use it in future years. You can hold many different investment products in your TFSA - GICsMutual Funds, Stocks Bonds and ETFs can all be put in your TFSA as well as Savings Accounts.

Savings Accounts 

This account lets you earn interest at a great variable rate. You can contribute any time and there's no minimum balance, making this is a great way start your retirement savings or to make small, frequent deposits to your TFSA.


GICs offer a higher interest rate  than a savings account by locking in your funds for a term of one to 5 years. The interest rate is fixed, so you'll know exactly what you'll earn by the end of your term, and your money is guaranteed 100% by the Credit Union Deposit Guarantee Corporation of Manitoba.
