The Canadian government launched the Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) to encourage better savings practices in Canadian households. You can use the account like a regular savings account to hold cash to grow your wealth through interest income. However, the account offers much more if you make better use of the available contribution room.

Investing in a TFSA with high-yielding, income-generating assets can be a great way to build a strong self-managed retirement portfolio. The TFSA is an ideal investment vehicle for Canadians who want to build a portfolio for their retirement.

The account is flexible in that you can withdraw funds from your account without incurring penalties for early withdrawals. Any amount you withdraw will be added to the contribution space for the following calendar year.

Many Canadian retirees love the tax-free income they can earn from investing in a TFSA. Retirees who use their TFSA as a source of additional passive income don’t have to worry about moving to a higher tax bracket and triggering a clawback on their Old Age Security (OAS) income.

The TFSA contribution limit has increased by $6,000 in the 2022 update. The cumulative contribution room since account inception is $81,500.

Dividend stocks are a great choice for investors looking to build retirement funds into their TFSA. Today I’m going to discuss a high yielding dividend stock that might be ideal to start building such a TFSA portfolio.
