A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is an investment savings plan registered with the Canadian federal government. It allows your retirement savings to grow in a tax-sheltered environment until you begin withdrawing the funds. Your contributions into it are tax deductible, which helps reduce your taxable income and lowers your yearly income tax bill.
RRSP Contribution Limits
Your contribution limit for each year is the lower of 18% of your earned income from the previous year or the maximum contribution amount for the tax year: $25,370 in 2016. Your personal contribution limit will vary due to a number of factors, including if you have a pension adjustment or if you carry forward unused contribution room from previous years. Refer to your most recent Notice of Assessment from the Canada Revenue Agency to find out how much you can contribute to your RRSP.
In order for your contributions to count as a deduction against the 2016 tax year, you must make the contribution before the deadline, which is March 1, 2017.
