How much should Canadians save for retirement?

Rounding it up

  • Canadians should aim to save at least 10 to 15% of their pre-tax income for retirement each month.

  • Saving for your golden years requires frequent contributions to an RRSP or a similar tax-advantaged retirement account.

  • When planning your retirement savings strategy, consider other potential sources of income, such as other investment accounts, rental income, and employer or government pensions.

  • The earlier you can start saving for retirement, the better; there’s no better time to start saving than right now.
