Hot Off The Press ... TD Bank Joins The Fray

Good news ... TD Canada Trust has announced that the RDSP is now available.

And with Scotiabank expected to come on board in a mere few weeks (November 23, 2009), that brings to five the number of banks which will be offering the RDSP nationally.

With totals apparently nearing close to 20,000 accounts opened and nearly $40 million distributed through Canada Disability Savings Grants and Canada Disability Savings Bonds. Yep, that's right, I said $40 million distributed from the Federal Government to individuals with disabilities.

And, as Doug advises us at the RDSP Blog, the banks are now starting to become more streamlined around setting up the RDSP and receiving Federal Government contributions into the plan. Which is very good news, indeed.
