A pet peeve: the plural of RRSP, of TFSA, indeed (I believe) of anything, does not involve an apostrophe.sf-smile

The Globe had a recent article on this topic:

The apostrophe is not just for possession (Alice's dog) and contraction (didn't).

Under the Basic Manual of Style in the Random House Dictionary (1980), the plural of abbreviations uses apostrophe: V.I.P.'s, GIC's.

Under the style rules of NY Times, just the plural of abbreviations with periods uses apostrophe: V.I.P.'s. Plural of GIC would be GICs.

Norman1, though your references are to American style guides - you know, those people who pretty much spell everything their own, U-Neek way and don't seem to pay much heed to English English - ok, you win, I'll change my ways. Thanks.

Lol. Your link refers to ...Converting to an RRIF means you will have to make annual withdrawals of a percentage of your RRIF's value, fully taxed at your top marginal rate. (Those with taxable income above $202,800 now face a top marginal tax rate that exceeds 50 per cent in several provinces.)

An RRSP or a RRSP? I say a.
