BMO to make announcement on RDSPs - Former Winnipeg Jets, Pittsburgh
Penguins, Calgary Flames and Ottawa Senators player, Jim Kyte, joins
TORONTO, Nov. 24 /CNW/ - The Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) was introduced to Canadians almost one year ago to help address the financial needs of Canadians with disabilities. It is estimated that there are over 800,000 people in Canada who are eligible for the disability tax credit, which potentially qualifies them for the RDSP. Under the RDSP program, individuals can contribute a lifetime maximum of up to $200,000 and could potentially receive up to $90,000 in Federal Grants and Bonds.
Discuss some of the real successes and challenges, and also a look ahead on what to expect in the future of the RDSP. BMO will make a special announcement at the event.
