Ontario Tax Credits and Benefits
The Government of Canada announced the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP), the Canada Disability Savings Grant, and the Canada Disability Savings Bond as a way to help Canadians with disabilities and their families save for the future.
Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP)
If you are a Canadian resident under the age of 60 and are eligible for the Disability Tax Credit, you are eligible for the RDSP. Earnings accumulate tax-free, until you take money out of your RDSP. Parent or guardians may open an RDSP for a minor. For more information, please see www.rdsp.com
Canadian Disability Savings Grant
Through the Canada Disability Savings Grant, the Government deposits money into your RDSP. The Government provides matching grants up to 300%, depending on the amount contributed and the Beneficiary's Family Income.
Canadian Disability Savings Bond
Through the Canada Disability Savings Bond, the government deposits money into the RDSP of low and modest-income Canadians.
