2024 RRSP-TFSA campaign | Information and important dates

January 29, 2024

The 2024 RRSP-TFSA campaign is in full swing! Enjoy a distinctive remote sales experience with EVO and our various sales tools.



The RRSP-TFSA campaign is the busiest time of the year. Here are a few things to consider:

Since 2024 is a leap year, the RRSP contribution deadline for the 2023 tax year is February 29 (not March 1).

We do everything we can to respect RRSP contribution deadlines. Please use EVO and EVO Contribution to submit your requests. We will not make exceptions to the deadlines stated in this article.  

If a contribution is made without sufficient funds, the contribution will have to be reversed and the tax receipt cancelled.
