  1. Thank you for the article, very interesting! My wife and I became Canadian residents on April, 2018. Our contribution room would count the year of 2018 and 2019? Also, as we share a commun saving account, could the contribuition be doubled for us?

    • @Jacinto:

      Congrats on becoming residents of Canada! 🙂
      Your TFSA contribution room starts to accumulate in 2018, and you will EACH have a total contribution room of $11,500 in 2019…for a combined amount of $23,000. For your TFSA accounts, you and your wife will need to open separate TFSA accounts. This does not affect your normal (common) savings account. Hope this helps! Cheers.
