After several years of growth, membership in Canada’s 15,130 active registered pension plans (RPP) remained about the same in 2005, according to newly released data by Statistics Canada.

At the beginning of 2006, active RPPs covered less than 5.7 million members, an increase of only 0.4 per cent or 20,000 from the year before.
