Federal Retirees’ Brief on Bill C-27

May 25, 2017 - Advocacy

On May 15, 2017, the National Association of Federal Retirees submitted its brief on Bill C-27 to Finance Canada.


Bill C-27 would introduce target benefit pension plans for Crown corporations and federally-regulated employers. Although Bill C-27 would not impact our members if enacted as-is, the potentially corrosive effect it could have on Canadians’ collective retirement income security concerns us. There’s a sacred trust for the federal government to protect the retirement income security that’s already been earned by millions of Canadians in defined benefit plans – and that’s why we’re taking action.

Make sure you’ve told your Member of Parliament you’re concerned about Bill C-27 – we’ve made it easy via our website – and read the brief today and share with friends and family why opposing this bill is so important to Federal Retirees.
