Pooled registered pension plan (PRPP)

Canada-wide, affordable and quick to set up

Are you an employer or self-employed individual in Yukon, Northwest Territories or Nunavut, or a federally regulated employer in Canada? If you don’t already have a workplace savings plan, you can set up a Pooled Registered Pension Plan (PRPP) that:

Helps your plan members save for retirement

Helps you attract and retain employees

Is easy to set up and manage

Lets you decide if you want to contribute to the plan or not

With a PRPP, we administer the plan for you. That means you have fewer fiduciary duties and obligations compared to other plans.

What is a PRPP?

It is a simplified Defined Contribution Registered Pension Plan

Designed for small and medium-sized businesses (see Voluntary retirement savings plan (VRSP) for Quebec).

A Manulife PRPP is simple to set up and administer:

Complete the online application in as little as 20 minutes—there’s no paperwork

Decide if you want to contribute to the plan, how much and how often

Plan members can take advantage of low investment management fees

Maximize participation with automatic enrolment as soon as employees are eligible

Work with an experienced and trusted Canadian provider of group retirement solutions for employers

Integrate your PRPP with a payroll provider.
