Registered Retirement Savings Plan Contribution - RRSP Contribution
DEFINITION of 'Registered Retirement Savings Plan Contribution - RRSP Contribution'
Assets invested in an RRSP. RRSP contributions can be made at any time and for any amount up to an individual's contribution limit for the year. If a contributor does not make the maximum allowable contribution, the balance of unused contribution room from 1991 onwards is carried forward indefinitely. This allows people to make up for the years that they did not maximize their allowed RRSP contributions.
