How to make MPF Canada Pension contributions:
- Use the LPCC (Live Performance Contract for Canada).
- Fill in the accompanying LPCC-Pen and have the Purchaser/Employer sign to enable you to make a pension contribution on her/his behalf. Registered Canada Pension plans are “Employer” Plans, requiring employers to make contributions on behalf of employees. However, The LPCC-Pen allows you to make pension contributions on behalf of your employer.
- Submit both contracts to the AFM local office with a cheque for your contribution (up to 12% of scale).
These are the files you will need if you plan to contribute to your pension fund:
