On August 11, 2015, the government of Ontario released new details about the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan (ORPP), an initiative that aims to provide a predictable source of retirement income in addition to CPP, for Ontarians. The plan comes into effect in 2017, leaving many employers wondering how exactly it will affect their compensation packages moving forward.

How will the new ORPP affect your business? What changes, if any, will need to be made to your own retirement plans? Is your team aware of the new rules, and are they ready to apply them in the years to come?

Webinar Highlights

Join Stephanie Kalinowski, a Partner with the law firm Hicks Morley, as she discusses the rollout of the ORPP, how its implementation will affect employers, and what you can do to prepare. You won’t want to miss this 60 minute webinar as Stephanie answers questions such as:

  • What is a "comparable workplace pension plan", which will determine whether employees participate in the ORPP?
  • How and when will the ORPP be implemented? What does the federal election mean for the ORPP?
