RRSP contribution limit

How much can I contribute to my RRSP?

Contribution Room

The RRSP deadline to contribute to your plan is coming up, and you may be wondering how much you can contribute to your Common Wealth plan. General contribution limits for RRSPs, TFSAs, and DPSPs are set by the government and can be found here.

If your plan includes a DPSP, your employer’s DPSP contributions will reduce your RRSP contribution limit next year. For example, if your employer contributes $1,000 to your DPSP in 2022, your personal RRSP contribution room will decrease by $1,000 in 2023.

To ensure your contribution is processed and meets the RRSP deadline, contributions to the Common Wealth plan must be made by Wednesday, February 28th, 2024, at 11:59 pm EST.

Contact the CRA

You can get your contribution room online through the CRA’s My Account service. If you have not yet created an account, you can contact the Canada Revenue Agency at 1-800-267-6999.

Don’t forget the TFSA

Your Common Wealth plan also comes with a TFSA. That means you can contribute another $6,500 to your retirement plan. Many people don’t think to use TFSAs for retirement, but every dollar of retirement income you withdraw from a TFSA is 100% tax-free. The CRA has increased the 2024 TFSA contribution limit to $7,000.

Tax Refunds

If it looks like you might be getting a tax refund in the spring, you can consider putting it to work in your Common Wealth plan.
