The Role of the Employer and the Québec Pension Plan
The Québec Pension Plan (QPP) is a compulsory public insurance plan. Its purpose is to provide persons who work in Québec (or have worked in Québec) and their families with basic financial protection in the event of retirement, death or disability.
As an employer, it is your responsibility to collect QPP contributions and remit them to Revenu Québec.
