Re: Letter of support of the World Pension Alliance to the MEBCO position on the Target Benefit Legislation for Collectively Bargained Multi-Employer Pension Plans (CBMEPPS)
Dear Honourable Minister Ceci,
The World Pension Alliance (WPA) is a collective organization representing the interests of over 200 million members of pension plans registered in jurisdictions around the World. Our membership includes the Multi Employer Benefit Council of Canada (MEBCO) along with the AEIP (European Association of Paritarian Institutions of Social Protection) and PensionsEurope of Europe; the NCCMP (National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans), the ABC (American Benefits Council), the NCPERS (National Conference On Public Employee Retirement Systems) of the United States of America; the FIAP (International Federation of Pension Fund Administrators) of Latin America; and ASFA (Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia) of Australia.
MEBCO has communicated with us regarding its March 8, 2017 submission and this has been discussed by the WPA executive.
On behalf of the WPA we confirm that we fully endorse and support MEBCO’s position as communicated in its March 8th letter. We hope you will treat the matter with great urgency.
World Pension Alliance
