I have group RRSPs from my company (my company matches a certain percentage of what I contribute). How are group RRSPs reported on the tax return?

Any non-transfer contribution made into an RRSP in your name before March 2nd 2015 must be reported in the same way. CRA doesn't care if it is made through a group plan or your own personal plan. It's all the same to them!
You must be careful not to exceed your 2014 Deduction limit amount A on your 2013 Notice of Assessment. This can occur if group RRSP contributions aren't taken into account.

CRA is lenient and permits $2000 overcontribution ( but not deduction) before penalties apply.
Also if you do go over, file a T1-OVS to report the overage, and sanction the withdrawal of excess amounts.

In any event, no matter what you contribute, you can only deduct up to amount A from your 2014 income.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
