The Ministère des Finances has created a new calculator to allow retirees who are working or would like to return to work to estimate the share of their work income that will remain in their portfolio once taxation has been considered.
The calculator therefore helps to make a more informed financial decision since it shows the available income before and after returning to work. The tool considers the provincial and federal tax systems, but also the employment incentive measures to which workers may be entitled, depending on their situation.
