It’s been a difficult time in the markets, with the falling price of oil and a weaker Canadian dollar still looming large over equities and the economy.

On top of that, RRSP season is now upon us.

BNN's Catherine Murray examines the importance of Registered Retirement Savings Plans with Neil McIver, director of wealth management at Richardson GMP, Kash Pashootan, senior vice president and portfolio manager, private client group at Raymond James and Brian Burlacoff, advisor with Sun Life Financial. Issues discussed include:

- How much of the entire year comes down to RRSP season for advisors
- Whether these savings plans are less important to clients in light of the advent of TFSAs and other investment tools
