The 2018 RRSP contribution deadline is rapidly approaching and the last day to make contributions is March 1, 2019. Why should you contribute to an RRSP? Contributing to an RRSP before March 1 lowers your 2018 taxable income and result in less income tax owing when you file your 2018 tax return. If you normally get a refund, a RRSP contribution can increase the size of your refund and if you generally owe tax, a contribution can help lower the amount owing.
