Years to Save
The number of years you have to save.

The amount you wish to have in savings at the end of this savings plan.

Amount Currently Saved
Total you currently have saved toward this savings goal.

Savings per Period
The amount you will contribute to your investments.

Expected Rate of Return
Annual rate of return on your savings. The actual rate of return is largely dependent on the type of investments you select. For example, for the last thirty years the average annual rate of return for the TSX is about 10%. Savings accounts at a bank or credit union may pay as little as 2% or less. It is important to remember that future rates of return can't be predicted with certainty and that investments that pay higher rates of return are subject to higher risk and volatility. The actual rate of return on investments can vary widely over time, especially for long-term investments. This includes the potential loss of principal on your investment.

Expected Inflation Rate
What you expect for the average long-term inflation rate.
