When does CRA update TFSA room?

It's March 14 already and CRA haven't still updated the TFSA contribution room on my account. It seems very late already. Any idea when this might happen? By now, I am sure all financial institutions would have reported their numbers.

It takes a long time in my experience. You absolutely must track your own contributions and withdrawals on a basic spreadsheet IMO.

My experience is that you have to keep your own records as CRA does not keep on top of the TFSA contributions or withdrawals.

I do track on my own but I transferred some position to TFSA during the year. I just want to make sure the 'in-kind' contribution was properly valued at market close on the day of transfer.

This depends on when the banks send the info to the CRA. I am not sure what the deadline is for banks to report, but I have seen it go until the end of April before some things show up. So best to keep track yourself.
