Quebec's VRSP legislation is intended to help workers in Quebec save for retirement by making workplace savings plans mandatory for all employers in the province with five or more eligible employees. Through a series of staggered deadlines (based upon the size of an organization’s workforce), almost all employees in the province will eventually have access to a form of retirement savings plan.
