Other types of savings accounts
High interest savings accounts pay the most interest of any kind of savings account, but are often only available to people who have reached the age of majority (either 18 or 19 years old, depending on your province).
Tax-free savings accounts (TFSAs) are a type of registered saving account that earns interest tax-free. By law, TFSAs can only be opened by Canadians who are 18 years of age and over.
Senior savings accounts
Similarly to how banks offer special accounts with lower fees to children, seniors 65 and over can sometimes take advantage of seniors savings accounts that waive minimum balances and transaction fees.
