Hey, since becoming PR there's a lot less question about my stay in Canada, at least for the next 5 years when I have to renew.

My previous tax return, I filled the bare minimum, temporary worker stuff not planning to stay in Canada forever, so getting the most of my pay. I think there were some Pensiun related boxes like RRSP in the tax form that I submitted to the employer, but it has been 0 for now.

What do you think I need to resubmit to my employer, changes to the tax form that I gave them when I started?

There is some time before my retirement :) but being immigrants I think we worry about every angle since day one, at least I do. :)

Any other finance tips that could help people to settle down in Canada, please share them. Sorry if the questions vague, but right now I understand essentially nothing about these things. Other than paystubs and having to file taxes every year.

Is there anyone I can talk about this, an accountant, if so what kind?

Thanks

This isn’t really the best place to get a general rundown of the basics of personal finance, pension and savings vehicles. Would suggest googling basics like retirement Canada. RRSP and TFSA are terms that should come up as well as CPP/OAS/GIS.
