Generally, the maximum contribution room for a year is equal to the total of unused contribution room from the previous year, distributions made in the previous year and the TSFA dollar limit for the current year (TFSA dollar limit is determined by the Canada Revenue Agency and will no longer be indexed to inflation). The maximum annual contribution applies to all of your TFSAs held with HSBC Bank Canada or any other financial institution. Only Canadian residents, who are over 18 years of age and have a valid Social Insurance Number, can make contributions to a TFSA. Consult your tax advisor for full details about TFSAs and how they relate to your tax situation.
