In terms of the level of tax that must be remitted for the withdrawal of RRSP’s, as this is based on the existing tax rates you are subject to this will depend on the amount of money withdrawn and the level of income you have that year.

In terms of other government programs, their are things like employment insurance, but without something more unusual than unemployement there are not a lot of other programs to aid with repayment of debt.
