Fact Sheet - PPP Contributions

Contributions made to the INTEGRIS Personal Pension Plan (PPP) as a Registered Pension Plan (RPP) and those made to Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) are subject to the maximum limits imposed by the Canada Revenue Agency.

The information below sets out the 2015 contribution limits and Maximum Pensionable Salary information applicable to the Defined Benefit (DB) and Defined Contribution (DC) components of the PPP which are in turn compared to the RRSP contribution limits applicable to individuals who remain in RRSPs. Further, individuals who establish their own PPPs will have the benefit of being able to make an additional contribution to their RRSP. Below is a summary of these PPP and additional RRSP contribution amounts.



  • Maximum Pensionable Salary (MPS) = $140,944.44
  • DB Limit = $ 40,242.75 (age dependent)
    Example: $ 30,938.81 (at age 50)
  • DC Limit = $25,370
  • RRSP Limit = $24, 930
  • INTEGRIS DC -­‐ RRSP Gap = $440
  • INTEGRIS DB -­‐ Additional RRSP = $600
