How much do pensions pay in Canada?

Rounding it up

  • The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is a benefit paid to Canadian residents on a monthly basis once they retire. Quebec has its own plan called the Quebec Pension Plan (QPP).

  • Residents receive a pension based on how much they earned and contributed to the CPP while working.

  • The contribution rate is 5.25% of gross employment income between $3,500 and $55,200.

  • There are other pension plan options available, such as Old Age Security, Registered Retirement Savings Plans, and the Supplemental Pension Plan.
