Abstract

Canadian tax rules purport to offer equal access to deferred-income retirement saving. In practice, they do not. Uniform, target retirement savings limits must be adopted so that all Canadians will have the same opportunity to save for retirement. The author recommends replacing current contribution limits with a more equitable lump-sum accumulation target of $1 million – or more – as a preferred option.
