Canadian pension plan administrators are facing immediate and unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To assist the retirement income community in navigating these challenges, ACPM has brought together a panel of top pension legal experts to discuss fiduciary decision-making and the related practical problems for pension fiduciaries arising in the current environment. Moderated by the Chair of ACPM, our panel will address the following topics:
- Plan administrators’ fiduciary duties and management of conflicts of interest post-Indalex (the pivotal 2013 Supreme Court of Canada decision)
- Overview of recent pension legislative and regulatory measures implemented across Canada to address COVID-19
- Practical problem areas for pension fiduciaries in the governing, investment and funding of their pension plans and related employee communication challenges
Our panel will also highlight jurisdictional differences across Canada, as applicable. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session. Please join us for this practical and informative session.
