Managing RRSP Contributions Through Payroll

RRSP contributions through payroll can be set up as a benefit with employee deductions processed each pay period, possibly with an employer match. An employer may also choose to allow employees to transfer certain types of employment income to their RRSP, such as bonuses, to defer income tax. Join us to learn how an employer Group RRSP program works, taxable benefit implications for employer contributions and what types of income an employee can transfer to an RRSP to defer income tax.
