With the announcement of the TFSA rule changes last week, there has been a few interesting articles published on the topic.
In my Wednesday article on the RRSP meltdown strategy , I wrote about how assets swaps were being used to shift assets to the TFSA. However, Canadian Financial DIY  pointed out that the same result can still be achieved simply buying in the two accounts. I would agree with that assessment!
Here is a summary of this past week’s articles.
