Comprised of members representing various geographic regions and industries across Canada, the Pensions Committee monitors initiatives from the government and other regulatory bodies that will have an impact on pensions, as well as other post-employment benefits issues.
The Pensions Committee provides guidance and expert opinions, including actuarial perspectives, on related issues relevant to FEI Canada members.
This committee also develops FEI Canada’s public positions on such emerging issues, acting as advisors on pensions, employer risk, employee retirement planning, and other current post-employment topics to industry groups, government, associations, and other constituents who will benefit from the expert counsel of the committee.
