Contribution methods: In order to maintain a balanced business model, certain contribution methods will remain suspended beyond June 1, 2022. Therefore, lump sum contributions and automatic bank withdrawals will not be accepted for non-RRSP+ share purchases. The suspension does not affect payroll deductions, existing preauthorized withdrawal agreements, or repayments that are required under the HBP or LLP.
