What's the difference between the Fonds de solidarité FTQ RRSP+ and a traditional RRSP?

Compared to a traditional RRSP, the RRSP+ at the Fonds offers your employees not one, but two tax benefits: The deduction applicable to any RRSP and the Fonds' additional 30 percent tax credit.¹

The RRSP+ is advantageous not only for your employees, but also for all Québecers. Money saved with the Fonds is primarily invested in local businesses throughout the province to stimulate the economy and help create, maintain, and safeguard jobs.

Legal Notes
The acquisition of shares of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ may give rise to labour-sponsored fund tax credits. The tax credits amount to 30%, namely 15% at the Quebec level and 15% at the federal level, and are limited to $1,500 per fiscal year, which represents a $5,000 purchase of shares of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ. On March 1, 2024, The Government of Québec announced in Information Bulletin 2024-3 that tax legislation would be amended to postpone by three years the rule providing that the tax credit would be available only to individuals whose taxable income for a given taxation year was below the highest tax rate. Please note that this postponement may be subject to legislative changes.
Please read the prospectus before buying Fonds de solidarité FTQ shares. Copies of the prospectus may be obtained on the Website fondsftq.com, from a local representative or at the offices of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ. The shares of the Fonds de solidarité FTQ are not guaranteed, their value changes and past performance may not be repeated.
Example based on the 2023 taxation year for an individual with an annual taxable income of $31,500, at a marginal rate of 26.5%. The calculated amounts are estimates that can vary according to your tax situation.
