Get RRSP+ through payroll deduction | Fonds de solidarité FTQ

What is the Fonds de solidarité FTQ RRSP+ payroll deduction solution?

RRSP+ is the easy way for your employees to save through payroll deduction while getting an added plus—one that over 694,000 Quebecers already enjoy.

  • 30% extra income tax savings*
  • 7.8% annual return**

RRSP+ has other benefits, too:

  • Save for retirement and more
    People generally put money in an RRSP to save for retirement, but an RRSP can be used for more—to buy a first home, for instance.
  • Support local businesses
    The Fonds invests in hundreds of Québec businesses and in the process creates or saves thousands of jobs. When you invest in an RRSP+, you give a big boost to the Québec economy!
  • Build a more responsible economy
    The Fonds backs businesses and projects that promote sustainable development and have a positive impact on our communities. It also helps redevelop schoolyards and contributes to green laneway projects. With RRSP+, your employees help build a better world.


* Fonds de solidarité FTQ shareholders receive income tax credits of 15% in Québec and 15% federally. Credits are limited to $1,500 per tax year, which corresponds to $5,000 in Fonds de solidarité FTQ shares.

** Annual compounded returns to the shareholder as at May 31, 2019 : 3 years = 8.1, 5 years= 7.7, 10 years=7.3

Each rate of return listed is the total historical annual compound rate of return. Each one reflects fluctuations in share value and reinvestment of all dividends, but is not adjusted for income tax owing by the holder, which would result in a lower return. Fonds de solidarité FTQ shares are not guaranteed, their value fluctuates, and past returns are not indicative of future returns.
