Watch the below video for a comprehensive look at Canadian Government Pension Plans including the Canadian Pension Plan (CPP), Old Age Security (OAS), and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).

  • It is vital to understand how contribution amounts, maximum contributions and years with and without contributions will impact the amount you will receive from CPP. 
  • Gain knowledge around income thresholds and the clawback system for OAS.
  • GIS is based on household income and you may be eligible for a portion even if you aren't eligible for the full amount.

We encourage you to consult with a financial planner for personalized advice on what these benefits will look like for you.
