In brief

When should I contribute to my RRSP?

You can contribute to your RRSP at any point during the year, plus the first 60 days of the following year. Contributions you make in January and February are deducted from your previous year’s income.

For the 2024 tax year

The contribution deadline is March 1st, 2025. If you make contributions after this date, you will have to claim them as deductions on your 2025 tax return.
