Non-Registered Investment and Savings Plans
Non-registered investment accounts can be in an individual's name, in a joint name (with two or more account owners), in trust, or on behalf of incorporated and unincorporated organizations.
Dollar Cost Averaging
Investing regularly helps to build wealth, and if a fixed amount of money is invested on a recurring basis, investors can benefit from dollar-cost averaging. When prices are low – more units or shares of the investment are purchased, and when prices are higher – fewer units are purchased, resulting in a lower average cost for the investor and potentially higher returns over time.
Income distributions are taxable in the hands of the owner or of the recipient as an income and can benefit from dividend tax credits on Eligible Canadian Dividends. moreover, only a portion of the capital gains are added to the income. Applicable capital losses are also deducted from the capital gains.
