On October 19, 2016, the Liberal Government very quietly announced their pursuit of a new legislation, called Bill C-27
, which would allow many Canadian employers to withdraw from their Defined Benefit (DB)
Pension Plan obligations, and permit the conversion of secure DB plans into Target Benefit (TB) plans.
A target benefit plan is the opposite of a DB plan: benefits can be reduced at any time (even in retirement) and employers bear no risk (members bear the risk in a TB plan). If passed into law, this would endanger the retirement security of millions of Canadians, and could potentially be applied retroactively, and even compromise retirees’ existing benefits. Click here
