Special Notes

  • Most tax credit reliefs in Canada are stated in "amount" figures. These are not to be subtracted directly from income tax but are instead first multiplied against the rate on the lowest tax bracket before doing so. In other words, these are basically acting like deductions in the more traditional sense of the word for tax purposes, but with a slight twist.

Social Security in Quebec

Quebec is unique out of all the provinces of Canada in terms of social security as it possesses and runs its own set of programs that replaces the ones on the federal level.

First off, the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is replaced with the Quebec Pension Plan (QPP) which is a compulsory public insurance plan for workers age 18 and over whose annual employment income is greater than $3,500. The Quebec Pension Plan serves to provide to those who work in Québec (or have worked in Québec) and their families with basic financial protection in the event of retirement, death, or disability. Contributions rates to the QPP are 6.15% on income over $3,500 while also incorporating a maximum cap on the applicable income.

The Quebec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) replaces and enhances the measures provided to new parents under the Employment Insurance (EI) program administered by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). As a result, residents of Quebec contribute to QPIP while also having slightly different contribution rates to employment insurance (EI). QPIP contribution rates are 0.494% while employment insurance rates are 1.2%. Just like with all other social security contributions, maximum caps exist on the applicable income.

The Quebec Pension Plan (QPP), Employment Insurance (EI), and Quebec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) all have corresponding tax credits available on the federal level that help offset the burden of the social security contributions up to certain limits. Note that these tax credits do not seem to exist on the provincial level despite these being provincial programs unique to Quebec.

Lastly, Quebec also has a health services fund (QHSF), which all residents with an income over a certain threshold, are required to contribute into. Rates hover around 1% with maximum caps on the required contributions.
