Among the highest RSP rates available in Canada
Our rates are among the best around, with no teaser rates, hidden fees or any other gimmicks. This means you can enjoy the combination of guaranteed principal and the opportunity to securely build your savings over time.
Why invest in an RSP?
With an RSP from Oaken, you can put money aside for your retirement in a secure investment that guarantees your principal and your interest, while taking advantage of the tax benefits that come with contributing to an RSP.
The contributions you make to your RSP reduce your overall taxable income. That means you’ll pay less income tax every year you contribute to your plan.
By the time you begin to withdraw your money at retirement, you’ll likely be in a lower tax bracket – so the money you withdraw at that time would be taxed at a lower rate.
Because a GIC guarantees your principal and interest, you know your retirement savings are secure.
The income you earn in your RSP is tax-sheltered until you withdraw it – so your money has the opportunity to grow.
If you’re married or living common-law, the higher income earning spouse can contribute to the other’s RSP. This evens out your overall taxable income, which means you pay less tax as a couple.
All Oaken GICs are eligible for Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) coverage, up to applicable limits, so your savings are protected and your money will be there when you need it.
Use your RSP for more than just retirement!

- Buying your first homeFirst time homebuyers can withdraw up to $25,000 from their RSP for a purchase of a home. You get 15 years to pay back what you’ve borrowed, making it an affordable way to get your first home sooner. Learn more about this at the Canada Revenue Agency website.
- Going back to schoolYou can also withdraw from your RSP to fund full-time training or education for you or your spouse. Learn more about this at the Canada Revenue Agency website.
- Reducing your overall taxesContribute to a spousal RSP to reduce your overall family tax bill. If you earn a significantly higher income (or expect to in retirement), you can contribute to an RSP in your spouse’s name while claiming the contribution as a deduction on your own tax return. In the long run you’ll pay less tax and you can both withdraw income during your retirement. Learn more about this at the Canada Revenue Agency website.
