Ontario considering PRPPs

TORONTO — In its recent provincial budget, the Ontario government said it is in consultations to determine how pooled registered pension plans (PRPPs) should be implemented before introducing legislation. The federal government has already implemented the federal legislative changes necessary to support the introduction of PRPPs. Alberta and Saskatchewan have introduced legislation to introduce PRPPs to the provinces, while similar plans in British Columbia were put on hold when the province’s legislative assembly adjourned in anticipation of the May 14 election. Quebec has also signalled its intention to pass similar legislation.
