2022-RRSP Deadline - March 1, 2022


I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a prosperous, successful, and healthy new year.

You can't talk about the beginning of the year, without talking about RRSPs! Here is a reminder of the rules governing RRSPs:

  • The contribution deadline is March 1, 2022.
  • Your allowable RRSP contribution for the current year is 18% of your earned income from the previous year up to a maximum RRSP contribution limit of $27,830 for 2021. The maximum RRSP contribution limit for 2022 is $29,210.

Looking for reasons to contribute to your RRSP?  Here are some ideas to consider:

1) Save on Taxes.

  • You will get a refund on any taxes payable on the amount you contribute to your RRSP. This refund is equal to your marginal tax rate.

2) Increase Your CCB

  • Contributing to an RRSP  lowers your taxable or net income. A lower net income can make you eligible for more income-tested government (provincial and federal) benefits, such as the Canada Child Benefits (CCB) and GST/HST credit.
  • CCB benefits are updated every July. With a lower taxable income in 2021, your recalculated CCB payments for the July 2022 to June 2023 period could be significantly increased, depending on where your income falls on the sliding benefits scale.

3) Save For Retirement

  • The idea behind the creation of the RRSP is to encourage Canadians to save towards their retirement. 
  • You get to invest in a tax-deferred account, keeping and re-investing gains and staying tax-free until you start withdrawing funds in retirement.  Once you start withdrawing, the government  recoups some of  those taxes back.

If you want to contribute to your RRSP, please contact me as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, or if I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
