How to Contribute to Your RRSP at CIBC Investor’s Edge By Transferring from a Linked Account

Well, it’s RRSP season again and although I’ve swum past all the hooks and jigs trying to catch or snag me into their high-fee mutual-fund traps, I do still want to make a contribution to an RRSP before the end of February. I intend to avoid any high pressure sales tactics, though, by simply making a transfer from my linked bank account into the RRSP account at CIBC Investor’s Edge.
