In general, you must pay Québec Pension Plan (QPP) contributions if you meet the following two conditions:

  • You are a worker who is 18 or older.
  • Your work income exceeds $3,500. 

You must also pay QPP contributions even if you are in one of the following situations:

  • You receive a retirement pension under the QPP or the Canada Pension Plan (CPP). 
  • You are 70 or older. 

The QPP is a mandatory public plan for Québec workers. As a rule, employers withhold QPP contributions from earned income.

You cease to pay QPP contributions when you have definitively retired.

For 2019, the total of the employee and employer QPP contribution rates remains at 10.8%, for an employee contribution rate of 5.4%. The total of the employee and employer rates for the first additional QPP contribution is 0.30%, for an employee contribution rate of 0.15%.

For 2020, the total of the employee and employer QPP contribution rates will remain at 10.8%, for an employee contribution rate of 5.4%.
