non-registered account

Definition

An investment account in which Canadian citizens can save money for a long time. Upon withdrawal, any profit realised from the investment becomes the capital gain of the investor, which is charged at 50% of the investor's marginal tax rate. One of the main benefits of this type of account is that it has no contribution limits as opposed to Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP).
