Every Canadian deserves to retire in dignity with a decent retirement income.
Defined benefit pension plans are the best and most efficient way to provide a secure and predictable income for CUPE members and all Canadian workers. They’re an essential part of Canada’s pension system. CUPE is dedicated to protecting and strengthening our member’s pension plans, and helping ensure all Canadians have a secure retirement income.
Yet over 11 million Canadians are without a workplace pension. That is why CUPE is advocating for an expansion of the Canada Pension Plan - the most affordable and effective way to ensure as many Canadians as possible can retire with dignity.
