How many Canadian families have $10K, per working spouse, to slide into a TFSA, after putting some $$ into their RRSPs? That's $20K, every year, while the average household income in Canada is at about $60K. People are in dreamland if they think the TFSA isn't designed exclusively to serve Canada's richest. And the revenue that the government foregoes keeps swelling, since the TFSA is accumulative -- i.e., as of Jan. 1 of this coming year, every Canadian will hypothetically be able to put away up to $50G. That's a lot of lost revenue for the gov't, and every year that number grows. Kevin Page, the former parliamentary budget office, estimated that the cost (in terms of lost revenues) to be $2 billion per year in the very near future.

To be clear, I maxed out my TFSA every year when it was at $5K. I even did it last year and will do it again next year, but that's only because I sold my place a year ago and had money to invest. Moving forward, it won't be feasible for me and the missus to each max out our $10K per, per year, while contributing to RRSPs and keeping some other monies more readily available. We are a childless household making $110-120K a year, or approximately twice the national average, and yet we won't be able to take full advantage of the benefit that is supposedly for all Canadians. That tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the TFSA.

Well for one a lot of eople don't realize that tfsa should be used before rrsp in most cases unless they are in the highest tax bracket already. So I would imagine a ton of people could fill their tfsas if they didn't fill their rrsp. TFSA is the most valuable tool for saving and making money right now.

What he's saying is $5500 a year is enough, and it should be.
TFSA is awesome for the country if people actually invested their TFSA account in Canadian companies shares to help finance their business.
But the reality is most people just use it to earn additional investment income that mostly benefit the upper class which is a minority.
Have to aggree with the Poo here.

So anyone that supports the Conservative party platform is uneducated or illogical in some way?  Interesting that... almost Harper-esque.

Actually voting conservative to me is unethical. I believe they do not have the best intentions for the people of this country. So yes to vote for them I think is a serious lack of moral judgment.

So anyone that disagrees with your point of view or opinion is immoral?  That's pretty f**ked up bud.
you don't have to agree with me but there are certain lines that this conservative government has crossed and to support that in my eyes is immoral. yes. as far as economic policies are concerned i can understand there are disagreements on what works best but when it's about being destructive on thee large scale and abolishing environmental protection for the environment in pursuit of profit and using xenophobic tactics in order drum up blind patriotism and scare people into thinking "your neighbor is the enemy" because he does not follow your traditional values than yes i find that very immoral.

i advocate tolerance and respect for our surroundings and a sustainable look at the future that protects this country for future generation to be able to enjoy the fruits of this land. that does not attack anyone. harpers policies and tactics do. and for that he must be voted out ASAP.

Not only do I disagree but I believe you are extremely misguided and ignorant for you to believe what you just stated about others being immoral.

As for the TFSA contributions, I also believe 5K is all you need. I put a lot into a TFSA and the only time I would ever use over 5K in a year is if someone died and left it to me.

OMG how can you sit there and say there are certain lines that *this conservative government* has crossed. Have you only been following politics for 11 years?

Some good discussion in here, but like every political conversation, ever, it has now degenerated. There's no point trying to convince others in a forum like this because no ones ever going to concede and say something like "y'know, good point, you've won me over!"

Who created this thread, anyway. We have back-to-back Sens hockey and ALDS game 5. Why are we talking about politics?

I kind of knew this would happen. Politics and religion, two subject people usually are inflexible on.

I don't expect any other argument because we probably stand on Diametrical view points.

Walter Pamic.

No relation.

I actually met him on Canada Day at the park. It started raining so my daughters and I ducked under the canopy. Wasn't until about 10 minutes later I figured out it was the CPC tent. For a guy with a pretty polished look he was surprisingly genuine. So he's probably not cut out for politics and that's why it'd a dead heat in Kanata (after the landslides the past few elections).
