LIRA, or locked-in retirement account and LRSP, or long-range strategic plan are very comparable in principle. The noteworthy difference between these two accounts is that a locked-in retirement arrangement is controlled using provincial legislation, while a locked-in retirement savings account is subject to federal law. LRSP's are under federal jurisdiction, and LIRA'S are within provincial jurisdiction.

The other one is called the RRSP which stands for the Registered Retirement Savings Plan. These are plans for Canadians. The difference between these two include the ways in which they are taxed. LIRAs can wait to pay taxes on the money until you retire or you take it out. RRSP, however, take out the taxes each year.
