It's true - with SaskWorks Venture Fund inside your RRSP, the tax savings can really add up. The SaskWorks labour-sponsored fund offers a 20% provincial tax credit and a 15% federal tax credit as well as the RRSP deduction.

SaskWorks Venture Fund shares can also be held outside an RRSP, and you have 60 days after December 31 to purchase and obtain tax credits for the prior year, so from December 31st – March 1st you can choose to apply your SaskWorks purchase to the prior or current year.
