Why should I contribute to an RRSP?

With an registered retirement savings plan, you can defer paying taxes on invested money until you retire.

The income and capital gains generated by your investments grow tax-free until you start making withdrawals.

Since your retirement tax rate is likely to be lower than you're working tax rate, you have more freedom to maintain your lifestyle.
