RRSP eligible Impact investment products
Few impact investment products are RRSP eligible. Even when they are, your RRSP provider may not allow you to hold them in your RRSP. Your local credit union may, however, have a responsible RRSP eligible offering — be certain to ask! If you would like to see a greater number of RRSP eligible impact investment products, consult our ‘Take action’ article on this topic.
Some options include:
- Shared World fixed term deposit
- SolarShare Bonds, currently for Ontario residents only
- Centre for Social Innovation Community bonds
- Oikocredit Global Impact GIC
