How Is Salary Calculated and Paid in Canada?

If you're an employee, then your employer will automatically send you paychecks with taxes deducted and credits applied. In other words, your take-home pay in Canada is calculated for you. Just remember that the deductions are based on a paper you filled out at the time of your employment: the TD1 Personal Tax Credits Return.

You can also request tax deductions from Canada's tax authority, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). When tax time comes, you can send in your return by using any CRA-approved software, a tax representative, or complete a manual file on paper. If you're traditionally employed, the filing deadline is April 30th, but self-employed earners have an extension to June 15th.

Taxes Included in This Canadian Salary Calculator

Our salary calculator for Canada takes each of the four major tax expenses into account. These include:

  • Federal tax, which is the money you're paying to the Canadian government. It starts at a 15% rate and rises with your income up to 33%. If you're employed, then recall that federal taxes have already been taken out of your paychecks.
  • Provincial tax, which is the money you're paying to the provincial government. The rate varies based on the province in which the income was generated.
  • Canada Pension Plan (CPP) or Quebec Pension Plan (QPP) contributions, which act as a financial security blanket if you lose income due to disability, death, or retirement. These contributions and employer matches are made automatically each time you're paid.
  • Employment Insurance (EI), which is a social insurance program supporting the unemployed during their job search or training. For Quebec, the calculator also includes the compulsory Quebec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) premiums. EI and QPIP premiums scale with your income and are also deducted automatically from your paycheck.
