What are the contribution limits, and how much can I contribute to Common Wealth?
General contribution limits for RRSPs, TFSAs, and DPSPs are set by the government and can be found here. You can view your individual contribution limits by logging into your CRA My Account or by looking on your latest notice of assessment under “Available contribution room for [YEAR].” If your plan includes a DPSP, contributions made on your behalf in a particular year reduce your RRSP contribution room for the following year.
It is your responsibility to ensure you do not exceed your limits under the Income Tax Act. There are penalties for over-contributing. You will be solely responsible for any taxes or fines imposed if contributions exceed the RRSP or TFSA limits. We provide education to members about their limits as part of their account.
You can set up a monthly savings plan, and make other contributions throughout the year as you would like. Monthly savings plans are pro-rated and capped at the annual contribution limits, but if you have more contribution room, you can make additional contributions as you wish.
