What is a Non-Registered Account?

Save for any reason and access your money when you need it

A non-registered account is a flexible investment account you can use to save as much as you want for any short- or long-term goal. At Ai Financial, we use this account to take advantage of investment loans, maximizing the principal to maximize returns.

How Non-Registered Account work?

  • No rules or limits on contributions; however, contributions won’t reduce your taxable income
  • Withdraw your money to use for any reason
  • Invest for as long as you want—you don’t have to close your account at a certain age

Where to open a Non-Registered account?

Most financial institutions can open a Non-reg account. For example: banks, credit unions, trust and loan companies, insurance companies.

Open an account with as little as $50.

You don’t need to wait until having a lot of money to start investing. The key to investing is to “start,” not to “prepare.”

What's the difference between registered and non-registered plans?

Government-registered plans and accounts, like RRSPs, FHSAs, TFSAs and RESPs, let you grow your savings tax-free under certain terms and conditions.

Although non-registered accounts offer no tax benefits, they usually allow for more flexibility as they have no contribution ceiling or tax limitations.
