FSRA seeks public feedback on its Proposed Guidance that clarifies requirements for Pension Plan Amendments to protect plan members

The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) is committed to promoting the good administration of pension plans and protecting the rights and benefits of all plan beneficiaries.

To help ensure pension plan administrators are following the provisions of the Pension Benefits Act, FSRA is releasing its proposed Plan Amendments Guidance for consultation.

This Guidance informs plan administrators of the requirements of the Pension Benefits Act applicable to:

  • the effective date of amendments
  • restrictions on replacing a variable indexation formula with a fixed indexation rate for benefits already earned
  • notice requirements and notice waivers for adverse amendments

FSRA invites stakeholders and the public to submit feedback until September 15, 2022.
