RRSP procrastinators

Half of us won’t contribute and those that do are likely to leave it to the last minute.



  • If you’ve already contributed to your RRSP this year, you’re ahead of the pack, according to two new surveys. A random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ shows just 43% of Canadians plan to contribute to their RRSP this year with contributions averaging $6,500.  Meanwhile, a study for TD suggests 60% of those planning to contribute for the 2012 tax year, still haven’t done so. The deadline is March 1. How do your RRSP contributions stack up?
