MONTREAL, Nov. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - In view of the high demand for its Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), Laurentian Bank is providing savers with an opportunity to invest early by launching a TFSA pre-sale.

- 47-month non-redeemable GIC offering a rate of 2.60%
- term deposit offering a rate of 1.10% that is redeemable without
penalty after six months
The amount invested in any of these products will be deposited into a Laurentian Bank Tactical TFSA in January 2010, and the product's rate and remaining term will be renewed.
Laurentian Bank reminds savers that the maximum amount that can be invested in a TFSA is $5,000 as of the 2009 taxation year, as well as that any sums not invested can be carried over to subsequent years.
