About the RDSP: The Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) is a Canada-wide registered matched savings plan specific for people with disabilities.

It is a unique savings program that allows savings to grow in a tax-deferred environment and provides matching federal contributions of up to 300% annually. Canada is the first country in the world to have a RDSP, which helps those living with a disability and their families save for the future. An estimated 500,000 people across Canada will benefit from this initiative, and future impacts of the RDSP go well beyond a simple planning tool.

If you or someone you know has a disability, you could be eligible for the RDSP.

What you will learn at this workshop:

  • An overall understanding of what the RDSP is and how it works
  • How to become eligible, open and manage your RDSP
  • How to benefit and maximize your savings
  • Updates and changes to the RDSP
  • You can ask an expert all your questions and concerns

Our sessions are held in a small group setting so that individual questions can easily be answered.

Who should attend?

  • People who want to learn more about the RDSP
  • People who already have an RDSP but want to learn more and ask questions
  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Parents, siblings, friends
  • Support workers
  • Financial Professionals
