An employee benefit plan is an arrangement where you as an employer give various non-wage compensations to employees in addition to their wages or salaries. Benefits can include: group insurance (health, dental, life, etc.), disability income protection, retirement benefits, sick leave, vacation, social security, profit sharing and funding of education.

As a rule, the benefits paid by the plan are considered to be employment income. The purpose of the benefits is to increase the economic security of employees.

Mortgage loan insurance enables you to purchase homes with as little as 5% down payment — with interest rates comparable to those with a 20% down payment. Mortgage life insurance guarantees that your remaining mortgage at the time of your death will not be a burden to your estate. Mortgage loan insurance is usually required when homebuyers make a down payment of less than 20% of the home's price.


Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) | Services

Your annual RSP contribution can reduce the amount of income tax you pay in that year and the money you put away can have years of tax-deferred growth potential. However, you generally have to pay tax when you cash in, make withdrawals, or receive payments from the plan. Any income you earn in the RRSP is usually exempt from tax for the time the funds remain in the plan.
