For the year 2019 and each subsequent year, the employee shall, by deduction at source and in addition to the base contribution provided for in the first paragraph, make a first additional contribution equal to the product of one-half of the first additional contribution rate for the year, established under section 44.2, and the lesser of the following amounts:

(b)  the employee’s maximum contributory earnings for the year, less the amount obtained by dividing the aggregate of all first additional contributions the employee was required to make in the year under a similar plan in respect of the employee’s salary and wages by the first additional contribution rate for employees for the year under that plan.
For the year 2024 and each subsequent year, the employee shall, by deduction at source and in addition to the contributions provided for in the first and second paragraphs, make a second additional contribution equal to the product of one-half of the second additional contribution rate, established under section 44.3, for the year and the lesser of the following amounts:

The amount of the salary and wages for a year to which subparagraph a of the first paragraph refers is the total of
(a)  the base wages, within the meaning of section 1159.1 of the Taxation Act (chapter I‐3), the employee receives for the year from pensionable employment, minus the amount deducted in computing the employee’s income for the year under section 76 of that Act; and
