Our committed RDSP expertise
For over 9 years, our Tax & Estate team has been committed to helping advisors and their clients maximize the benefits of the RDSP Program.
We’ve made it easy for over 50,000 Canadians to open an RDSP.
Many Canadians living with disabilities are not getting the financial help they need today, to ensure they are better-off tomorrow. Instead, an astounding 28% of Canadians who qualify have opened an RDSP since the program’s inception.* Those already benefitting from an RDSP see the shortfalls of the current system.
Mackenzie wants to help change that. We’ve worked diligently to become experts in this space, offering guidance, knowledge, and simplified our approach.

An RDSP is a registered savings plan established by the Federal Government to assist families in saving for the long-term financial security of individuals with severe disabilities. Government matching and extra funding for low-income beneficiaries form part of the Plan. Contributions to the plan are not tax deductible, but the earnings grow tax free while held in the plan.
The account holder is the individual who opens the RDSP, makes contributions to the plan and authorizes third parties to contribute.
The beneficiary is the disabled person who will benefit from the RDSP
