What are the 3 types of savings accounts?

Rounding it up

  • There are multiple types of savings accounts in Canada, the most common of which are the Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), High Interest Savings Account (HISA), and Joint Savings Account.

  • There are definite advantages to any of these savings accounts. They’re easy to open, plus your deposited money is safe and accessible.

  • A HISA can be a great investment vehicle thanks to the interest it accrues.

  • If you’re a couple looking to save for a house, car, child, or other big financial decisions, consider a joint savings account.
