Take Advantage of Improved Benefits within theFamily
Pension Plan

By improving on the limited nature of the traditional RRSP as well as the Individual Pension Plan (IPP), the Family Pension Plan can provide greater flexibility, increased tax benefits and higher returns for professionals looking to expand their retirement options.

Shelter More Income

Build a larger retirement nest-egg with a Family Pension Plan (FPP) by increased contribution levels on an annual basis.

Greater Asset Safety

Savings within a pension plan are protected from the claims of trade creditors, with tax-exempt roll-over of existing RRSP assets providing additional protection.

Tax Deduction of Fees

All investment, actuarial, administration and trustee fees related to a FPP can be deducted from corporate income.

Mitigate Market Loss

Ensure full funding of your pension plan – additional tax-deductible contributions are allowed each year to top up an FPP.

Greater compounding power withThe Family Pension Plan


The Family Pension Plan is a Canadian tax-savings solution for business owners and incorporated professionals looking for a better way of saving for their retirement. As compared to an RRSP, an FPP allows up to 60% greater tax-deferred compounding until the individual retires.

Contribution Flexibility
Unlike an RRSP, the combination potential within a FPP allows a switch between Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution components to compensate for fluctuations in the economic climate of a business.
