The Birth of the Canadian
PERSONAL PENSION PLAN™

In 2014, Canadian tax laws leveled the playing field for small business owners, increasing the tax on non-eligible dividends to make the tax bite between salary and dividends equivalent.

Pension benefits finally

Available to more Canadians


INTEGRIS designed and introduced the Personal Pension Plan™ (PPP®) to the Canadian market about four years ago for self-employed professionals that did not have access to the many benefits offered by pension plans.¬†To qualify for the Personal Pension Plan™ (PPP®), business owners and incorporated professionals must be between 30 and 71 years old and receiving a T4 income.

The Personal Pension Plan™ (PPP®) allows¬†its members to put the largest amount of money permitted by the Income Tax Act in a tax-deferred vehicle to save for their retirement. The INTEGRIS website provides a full list of the benefits allowed within the Personal Pension Plan.
