You only provide for member notification on the "pension website" and, in fact, many pensions do not have such a website.
In addition, many plan members (because of age, illness, affordability, or lack of technology skills) do not have access to pension websites that might exist

I authored a research report published by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries and the Society of Actuaries in March 2020 entitled "Classification of Risk Sharing in Pension Plans - Canadian Practices and Possibilities". It can be accessed from the SOA website at Section 5.4 of the report addresses transfers from one type of risk-sharing arrangement to another. The unique challenges of transfers between pension plans with different risk-sharing deals do not appear to have been addressed in the new FSRA guidance.
