Mississauga Board of Trade and Province Wide Employer Coalition Express Concerns About New Ontario Retirement Pension Plan 


June 2, 2015: Mississauga Board of Trade (MBOT) in partnership with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC), and a coalition of major Ontario employers are calling on the provincial government to broaden its definition of a comparable pension plan under the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan (ORPP), to be implemented in 2017.


In a letter addressed to Premier  Kathleen Wynne, a coalition of over 150 businesses, sector associations, chambers of commerce, and boards of trade are today urging the Ontario government to expand its definition of pension plan comparability to include capital accumulation plans, including (but not limited to) Defined Contribution plans. This move would ensure that companies in Ontario that have an existing pension plan for their employees would not be forced to incur this new cost of doing business.
