December 19, 2019 – Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) have had great success over the past decade, but could use a tune-up, says a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute.

In “TFSAs: Time for a Tune-Up,” author Alexandre Laurin argues that after a decade in existence, there is now enough data and empirical analysis on TFSA use to assess the extent to which the product is reaching its policy objectives, and how it can be made even more useful.
