Since their introduction in 2009, the tax-free savings account (TFSA) has been a smash hit with Canadians.Melanie Lambrick/The Globe and Mail

The tax-free savings account has been a smash hit with Canadians keen to take advantage of another avenue for tax-sheltered savings. The account can appear limited at first glance: Canadians who were 18 or over when the TFSA rolled out in 2009 only have a cumulative maximum contribution limit of $95,000.

But the beauty of the TFSA – and why it’s so popular with investors – is that any interest, dividends, capital gains or other kinds of investment income earned within the account are completely tax free, even as money is withdrawn from the account. Savvy investors can take advantage of a TFSA to maximize gains on their most promising investments, including stocks, exchange-traded funds, mutual funds or fixed-income securities with higher yields.

Are you one of these investors? Which stocks or investments resulted in such high returns? The Globe and Mail is looking to hear from Canadians who have large TFSA balances to find out more about how they accomplished the feat.
