This is a catch-all category that captures taxable income which does not qualify as one of the primary sources.

Major types of other income include:

  • Benefits received from RRSP (including from a registered retirement income fund)
  • Employer pension plan
  • Old-age security from the government of Canada
  • Benefits from employer’s deferred profit-sharing plan
  • Canada, Quebec, or foreign pension benefits
  • Retiring allowances
  • Benefits from Employment Insurance plan
  • Income from RESP
