The Ontario Retirement Pension Plan (ORPP) is an unprecedented new
mandatory provincial pension plan that represents the provincial
government's “made-in-Ontario” solution for expanding pension coverage
for eligible employees in that province. Proposed legislation enacting
the ORPP was introduced by the Ontario government last year, along with
an ORPP consultation paper on key design questions, and recently passed
second reading. Authored by Susan G. Seller and published in Benefits Canada.
