The CARRA and RRQ Merge to Become Retraite Québec
On January 1, 2016, the Commission administrative des régimes de retraite et d'assurances (CARRA) and the Régie des rentes du Québec (RRQ) will merge to become a single agency named Retraite Québec.
The change will not affect your obligations toward Revenu Québec. If you are an employer, you will continue to withhold Québec Pension Plan (QPP) contributions from your employees' remuneration and remit them to Revenu Québec along with your equivalent contribution as an employer. If you are a self-employed person, you will continue to pay your QPP contributions to Revenu Québec when you file your income tax return. Revenu Québec will remit all QPP contributions it receives to Retraite Québec.
