  • Bigger CPP, Bigger Risks: What “Fully Funded” Expansion Means and Doesn’t Mean

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

Advocates of the expanded CPP call the new plan “fully funded,” and emphasize the security and reliability of its promised benefits. In an uncertain world, however, even the Canada Pension Plan makes no guarantees. Ottawa and the provinces should explain the risks of the plan more clearly, and create new regulations to protect younger Canadians by limiting potential contribution-rate increases. 

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy
  • Free as a member benefit

To register for this call, please contact Allie Kehoe at akehoe@cdhowe.org or 416-800-0476.
