I have unused RRSP contribution for 2014, and would like to buy some RRSP. Just to clarify some things, if I put the money into my RRSP account, do I get a slip from the bank saying how much I contributed? Or do I have to buy a mutual fund (or whatever, GIC etc..) with the money? I would like to put it in the RRSP for now, to lower my taxes. Curious if it works that way and what "paperwork" does the bank give me to tell the government how much I contributed?
