First Home Savings Account

In the 2022 Federal budget, the Canadian government proposed the introduction of the tax-free First Home Savings Account (“FHSA”). This new registered plan enables prospective first-time home buyers to contribute up to $40,000 toward saving for their first home on a tax-free basis. Similar to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (“RRSP”), contributions to an FHSA are tax-deductible, and withdrawals to purchase a first home – including from investment income – are non-taxable, like a Tax-Free Savings Account (“TFSA”).

When a child starts to receive or earn their own money through an allowance, family gifts or a part-time job, their natural instinct is to spend it all. However, it’s never too early to start teaching children the importance of savings, and to respect the fact that money can also serve other goals, like sharing it to help others.
