Taxes and deductions that Queen's must take from your monthly pay cheque:
The amounts deducted for CPP and EI are not evenly distributed throughout the year. Deductions are made from each pay cheque and once the above amounts are reached during the calendar year, the deductions will cease. Contributions to CPP and EI will commence again January 1 of the following year.
