Due to December 1 falling on a Saturday this year, the deadline for contributions to the Ontario standardbred horsepeople’s RRSP, administered by the Ontario Harness Horse Association, is extended to Monday, December 3.

In order to ensure that contributions are received in the OHHA office by December 3, it is advised that members send them via a guaranteed delivery service, such as Canada Post’s Express Post, or by courier. Contributions received after December 3 will not be accepted and will be returned. Postmarks will not be considered. To ensure OHHA receives them, do not entrust their delivery to any other party.

Members wishing to deliver their contributions in person may do so at the OHHA office at 35 Crawford Crescent, Campbellville, Ont., (directly across the street from our previous location). There is a mailbox outside the door for after hours drop-off. The OHHA office will be open until 7:00 p.m. on December 3 for members’ convenience.

Any standardbred racing industry participant can join the plan. In order to qualify for the industry contribution to their retirement account, owners, trainers, and drivers must have participated in 24 races in 2011. Owners and breeders will be credited based on the percentage of the horse(s) they owned or bred. Breeders must be the owner of a mare whose offspring raced 24 times in 2011, or be the breeder of horses that competed in 24 starts in 2011. Assistant trainers and grooms must provide a T4, or letter from their employer verifying employment in 2011.

Further information and forms are available on the OHHA website at, or by calling the OHHA office 905-854-6442 or 1-866-774-6442.
