GROUP RSP

A more cost-effective way to save money for your retirement


A GRSP is a Retirement Savings Plan (RSP) that is administered by your employer on your (and your coworkers’) behalf. With a GRSP, you can contribute directly from your pay check using pre-tax dollars. GRSPs are similar to RRSPs in that they utilize your RRSP contribution limits and have the same tax advantages.


You can choose from a range of segregated funds, mutual funds, target-dated funds, as well as term investments, etc. As an employer who competes with many companies for talented employees, you try to offer your employees an attractive benefits package. A group retirement program has become an essential part of such a package.


Advantages– Group RRSP

  • The great advantage of a Group RRSP is that you invest the money before you get your hands on it (before you spend it)
  • The fees are lower for most of the Group Investments Fees
  • Some employers match your contribution.


Disadvantages – Group RRSP

  • Not much of an investment option, with very limited funds usually available
  • You don’t get much advice on asset allocation or managing your investment account etc.
  • If not managed properly, you may lose a significant amount of money.
