Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • We must repair our homes following a natural disaster;
  • Government assistance takes some time (more than 9 months);
  • We must free up funds to pay contractors.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of National Revenue to amend the law governing RRSPs so that anyone who has experienced a natural disaster such as a tornado, fire, flood or earthquake can withdraw their RRSP without being subject to taxation, penalties or a maximum withdrawal amount, and that the repayment period shall be 15 to 20 years, retroactive to May 6, 2017.
