Retirement Compensation Arrangements
A Retirement Compensation Arrangement provides a means for an employer (business member) to make retirement savings contributions for higher income employees. These employees, typically, are unable to make the full 18% contribution to their retirement fund due to legislative ceilings imposed by RRSP and pension limits.
