Group Retirement Savings

Our skilled advisors can guide you through the complex world of financial products, including group retirement savings plans, to help give your team the freedom to pursue their passions.

Do More for Your Team’s Financial Wellness

Show your team that you care about improving their financial wellness and reducing their financial stress. A group retirement savings plan is an easy tool to help them save for retirement and give them confidence in knowing that with your help, they’re taking important steps toward a financially secure future.


    • Group Retirement Savings Plan (GRSP): A GRSP is a group retirement program that allows for both employee and employer contributions. It empowers your team and you to invest effortlessly in their retirements while providing you another important opportunity to show that you care.
      • Deferred Profit Sharing Plan (DPSP): A DPSP is a group retirement savings program that enables employers to contribute business profits into their team’s group retirement savings as another means of helping take care of them. It allows only for employer contributions so it works well when paired with a GRSP, in which employees can contribute as well.  A DPSP comes with other advantages too, including that:
        • Employer contributions are not considered insurable earnings so they do not attract payroll taxes likes CPP, EI, or WCB
        • Employees cannot access their DPSP while actively employed
        • If an employee’s employment terminates prior to the defined vesting period, contributions are forfeited back to the employer
    • Registered Pension Plan (RPP): An RPP is a great tool for rewarding employees for long-term service to your business.  It offers a more structured approach to growing your team’s retirement savings by structuring employer and employee contributions to increase with years of service. And, an RPP is a sure way to help secure your employees’ financial futures because locking-in provisions ensure that the accumulated savings can only be used for income at retirement.

    Do more to ensure value for your money 

    If you already provide your employees with a group retirement savings plan, you already understand that it’s an important tool for attracting and retaining employees. After all, Canada’s retirement income crisis continues to escalate as our population ages, and more Canadians are turning to their employers to help them come out ahead.
