  • Inside Access: Rethinking Limits on Tax-Deferred Retirement Savings in Canada

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

Ottawa should raise contribution limits for savers in RRSPs and defined-contribution plans, according to William Robson's latest report. Robson finds that current limits are outdated, unfair, and put savers in RRSPs and defined-contribution plans at a major disadvantage. The core of the problem is the Factor of Nine, a little-known, outdated “equivalency test” for savings in various types of pension plans. Join this call to hear how three types of reforms could alleviate the problems with the Factor of Nine.

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy
  • Free as a member benefit

To register for this call, please contact Robin Ivory at rivory@cdhowe.org or (416) 865-1904 ext. 9998.
