You will actually need to take a couple steps here so CRA can recognize that unused RRSP contribution before you can successfully NetFile your 2018 tax return.
- Report the RRSP Contribution on your 2017 (assuming this is a contribution from 2017 or the First 60 days of 2018). When you make the ReFile Adjustment, you must be sure to carryforward, and not use it to adjust your 2017 contributions.
- Wait until your 2017 return is adjusted and a Notice of ReAssessment is issued. You should be able to see in your CRA My Account when it has been processed, and it will say how much you have for "unused contributions".
- Complete your 2018 tax return, claiming the unused contributions.
