What does ‘available contribution room’ mean for an RRSP?



Our response:

There are limits on how much you can contribute each year to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). Your total contribution room for the year is the lower of 18% of your earned income for the previous year, or the maximum contribution amount for the current tax year: $27,830 for 2021.
