Employer sponsored private pension plans provide an important source of retirement income for employees and their families. Employers generally set up pension plans voluntarily; however, once a pension plan is established, it must be funded and administered in compliance with applicable tax and pension laws.
OSFI supervises federally regulated private pension plans and intervenes in a timely manner to protect members and beneficiaries of pension plans from loss, while recognizing that plan administrators are ultimately responsible and that funding difficulties can result in a loss of benefits.
