Keeping You Informed – Online 2023 RRSP Contribution Deadline is February 26, 2024

February 07, 2024 | Joanne Livingston


The RRSP contribution deadline of February 29th, 2024, is fast approaching us for the 2023 tax year!

If you plan on making an online contribution, February 26th is the last day the request can be submitted for the funds to be processed in time for the deadline. Unfortunately, we are unable to backdate the contributions to the date it was sent. If you need help setting up an online contribution, we would be glad to help.

If you are wondering how much you can contribute to your RRSP, the maximum contribution is 18% of your 2022 earned income, or $30,780 (whichever is less). However, there may be other factors that affect your contribution room, such as unused contribution room from prior years.

You can determine your personal contribution room by checking your latest Notice of Assessment or logging on to your Canada Revenue Agency MyAccount at

Contributing early can give your RRSP a boost by giving your assets more time to benefit from tax-deferred compound growth. You can start making 2024 contributions at any time starting January 1st, and furthermore, the contribution limit for 2024 has increased to $31,560.

The mailing process for tax documents has just begun and will continue through to March 31, 2024. As always, we encourage you not to file too early as some slips will only start mailing mid-March.

On our WM Online platform, you can now choose to receive your tax documents electronically as soon as they become available instead of waiting for paper copies to arrive. They will also be archived for 7 years provided the account remains open.

A few key benefits of receiving your documents electronically are:
