Sustainable Plan Management. Effective Member Engagement Strategies. Vital Regulatory Updates.

A decade of economic turmoil has created a multitude of challenges for pension plans. In this brave new world low interest rates, exchange rate volatility and an aging workforce have caused the sustainability of the pension system to be questioned. At the same time, the increasingly rapid pace of technological progress brings opportunities, but also uncovers concerns. On the one hand, communication strategies must adapt to the digital habits of plan members. On the other hand, safeguarding sensitive data and protecting against privacy breaches becomes more critical than ever before. Layered over these intricacies is the implementation of the ORPP*, the new provincial retirement plan. January 2017 will mark the beginning of the registration process for employers; January 2018 will see the phase-in of the first payments. The reform has far-reaching consequences for existing pension plans, which may have to be adapted or wound up by the 2020 deadline. What better time to come together and discuss the state of pensions with your peers, thought leaders, regulators and international experts?
