self managed super fund

I moved to Australia 18 years ago from Canada and became a citizen two years after I arrived.

My wife and I have a self managed super fund in Australia and also an RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) in Canada.

I would really appreciate any information about whether we can transfer the Canadian RRSP into our self-managed superfund in Australia without paying the 25% income tax in Canada that is usually levied for early (pre-retirement) withdrawals.

Thanks heaps!

I know that you can transfer a UK pension into super. The best option will be to talk to a registered super fund/ financial planner. They usually have a list of countries who agree to transfer the pension/savings into Australian super.
