MONTRÉAL, April 24, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Standard Life Canada applauded Minister of State (Finance) Kevin Sorenson and the Federal government on consultations launched today on the framework for a new pension plan option.
"We congratulate Minister Sorenson and the Federal government on their leadership and their ongoing efforts to ensure as many Canadians as possible have access to a workplace pension plan. We support any dialogue that will contribute to the debate to strengthen the pension ecosystem," said Charles Guay, president and CEO of Standard Life Canada.
Standard Life has long been concerned with financial security upon retirement. Following the adoption of Bill C-25 by the federal government, Standard Life called on provincial and territorial finance ministers to support Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPPs). Standard Life advised the ministers that any legislation to be introduced should include such measures as mandatory sponsorship and automatic enrollment, and also be harmonized with the legislation of other provinces and territories. It welcomed the introduction of Voluntary Retirement Savings Plans (VRSP) in Québec which will be offered starting in July 1, 2014.
