Association Meeting – What is Risk Management
The Canadian taxation system is a progressive tax system. There is a limited number of tax deferral/tax shelter opportunities that Canadians have access to. This is why so many Canadians diversify through additional tax-deferral strategies like the Insured Retirement Plan. A good portion of these assets are earmarked for their heirs and future generations. Methods of reducing current taxes and effectively transferring these funds to future generations have become more important such as the waterfall concept.
