CRA indicates that a 3rd party can make an RRSP contribution

CRA indicated that it is acceptable for an RRSP contribution to be received from a third party (i.e., drawn on a bank account other than the annuitant’s) “provided that the payment is made at the direction or with the concurrence of the annuitant of the RRSP,” so that the RRSP receipt should be issued by the financial institution to the annuitant.
