When to start paying into CPP

January 11th, 2012

Reminder for employers:  if you are planning to hire a student or young person, remember that they are not required to pay into CPP until they turn 18.  If you are under the age of 18, you are exempt from contributing to the Canada Pension Plan.  You begin deducting CPP in the month after they turn 18.

So, if your employee turns 18 on January 15, 2012, you begin deducting CPP from their pay in February 2012.
