2021 RRSP Contribution Deadline: What you Should Know

You have until March 1, 2022 to contribute to your RRSP for the year 2021.

An RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) is a tax-advantaged savings plan, that can help you grow your retirement income. Any investment income earned in an RRSP is tax-deferred, until withdrawn.

While RRSPs are meant to save for retirement, you also have the option of using the funds in the plan to purchase your first home or pay for your education1.
