In June 2016, after years of discussions, the federal government reached an agreement in principle with provincial and territorial finance ministers to strengthen the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).

For those tasked with implementing the CPP enhancement on behalf of their employers — including those in payroll, human resources and accounting — regulatory and administrative compliance will require careful consideration.

Beyond that, these professionals will need to be able to clearly explain and communicate changes and challenges of the CPP enhancement to both employers and employees.
