Canada Pension Plan Enhancement (2nd Contribution Rate/Earnings Ceiling- January 2024)

The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) enhancement, which was introduced on January 1, 2019, is designed to help increase retirement income for working Canadians and their families.

The CPP is a mandatory pension plan financed by contributions from employees, employers, and self-employed individuals. It covers virtually all workers in Canada except Quebec, which administers its own plan called the Quebec Pension Plan (QPP). The CPP replaces a basic level of earnings for contributors upon retirement, disability, or death.

Once mature, the CPP enhancement will increase the maximum CPP retirement pension by about 50%. It will also increase the survivor and disability pensions.

Enhancing the CPP will significantly reduce the number of Canadian families at risk of not saving enough for retirement, particularly those who do not have a workplace pension plan.
