So, how is your retirement savings going? No matter if you’re a full-time freelancer or freelance off the side of your desk, it’s important to take charge of your financial future, and that includes saving for retirement.

This co-presented webinar will focus on the two main retirement saving vehicles for freelancers: RRSPs and TFSAs. Helen and Rita will cover the key benefits and also the potential pitfalls of each, including ways to maximize tax efficiency in asset allocation. The 20- to 30-minute presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
