What is the equivalent of a 401k in Canada?

Rounding it up

  • 401(k)s and Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). have key similarities and differences, but both help citizens save money and allow it to grow tax-free.

  • RRSPs are more portable than 401(k)s because they can be opened by a private citizen; 401(k)s are only available via employers.

  • Another key difference between the two savings vehicles is that RRSP limits can be moved to subsequent years.

  • Whether you contribute to a 401(k) or RRSP, it’s always best to start saving for your golden years as early as possible.
