Have you contributed the maximum allowable amount to your RRSP for the 2019 tax year? If not, you only have a few days left to do so. For 2019 contributions, the deadline is Monday, March 2nd.
Are you also considering contributing to your spouse’s RRSP? Although you have to stay within your own contribution limit, this strategy can have tax benefits later on. The reason is that it allows for better income splitting among the two of you once you are retired, which may help reduce taxes, as explained in this article (click here).

And, lastly, it’s time to begin compiling any documents needed for tax season. The deadline to file your 2019 Income Tax and Benefit Return is Thursday, April 30, 2020 (if you operated a business in 2019, the filing deadline is June 15, but any balance owed must be paid by April 30).
Until next time!
