Important deadlines for 2022

RRSP contribution deadline
The final date for your RRSP contributions to be eligible for the 2021 tax year is March 1, 2022. Refer to your Notice of Assessment (NOA) or access My Account information on the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website for your total RRSP contribution limit for the 2021 tax year.

Tax filing deadline for individuals

The deadline to file your 2021 personal income tax return is May 2, 2022, unless you're self‑employed. However, the CRA encourages individuals who expect to receive benefits under the GST Credit or the Canada Child Benefit not to delay the filing of their tax return to ensure their entitlements for the 2022-23 benefit year are properly determined.

Tax filing deadline for self-employed individuals
The deadline to file your 2021 taxes is June 15, 2022 if you're self‑employed.
