RRSP Pasta Challenge

Because we're not taught about finances, Talbot's experience coast to coast is that over 80% of Canadians do not understand a fundamental concept that would increase their RRSP income by 25-100%.

RRSP Pasta Question

In a 50% tax bracket with $1,000 after taxes to invest, how much could you (and should you) contribute to your RRSP?

If you're sure of the answer, great! Either way, take the "RRSP Pasta Challenge" to help everyone learn and benefit from this key idea, and spread the word to those you care about.
