TFSA Contribution Limit Raised to $6000 for 2019

The Tax-Free Savings Account, or TFSA, has been part of the financial landscape of Canadians for almost 10 years, specifically since January 1, 2009. Besides the increase in the contribution limit in 2015, there have been few changes to this tax vehicle since its creation.  The TFSA limit is indexed to inflation and rounded to the nearest $500,  2019 is now set to increase to $6000.  Cumulatively, $63,500 has been made available to contribute since 2009.  For more information on TFSAs Tax-free Savings Accounts
