We are pleased to announce that pensions in pay as of January 1, 2018 will be increased in respect of any retiree who was receiving a pension on June 30, 2017.

Annual Pension Increase (1.460%)

The "Annual Pension Increase" for January 1, 2018, calculated in accordance with the Plan text and reviewed by our external auditors, resulted in an increase of 1.460% to pensions paid from the Plan.  This impacts any member who will receive a pension from the Plan on January 1, 2018, and who was also in receipt of a pension on June 30, 2017.
