If you wish to contribute to your RRSP you need to do it right away.  The deadline for RRSP contributions is March 1st.

However, before you make your contribution you need to check your 2009 RRSP limit. You can check your RRSP limit by either calling the CRA at 1-800-959-8281 or by going to http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/quickaccess/. Just follow the

instructions on the phone or on the website.

You need to make sure you have a copy of your last year’s tax return or Notice of Assessment, as you will need it to answer security questions before you can access your RRSP Limit information.

If you do not know how to invest money into your RRSP, please talk to your financial adviser. You can invest money into a money market fund or a GIC of your choosing.


If you are an employer you need to file a T4 summary with the CRA and issue T4 slips to your employees.
The filing deadline is February 28, 2010.  The late filing penalty can be quite steep so please hurry.
