Ottawa- Speaking in the House of Commons, Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP, Mark Strahl, urged passage of Bill C-25: Pooled Registered Pension Plans Act.

"Hardworking Canadians, without a private pension plan, have called for this type of retirement savings vehicle." Strahl added, "Passage of this bill will mark a significant step forward in securing their retirement."

Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPP) will allow small and medium sized businesses, their employees and those who are self-employed to pool their money to provide for accessible, straightforward and administratively low-cost pension plan by reducing the legal and administrative burden faced by employers. It is because of these costs that 60 per cent of Canadians don't have access to a private pension plan.

According to Strahl, PRPPs offer a number of benefits, including:

  • easy enrolment due to low administrative cost and simple arrangement,
  • flexibility for employees and employers in setting their contribution amounts; and
  • portability, allowing employees to move their account as they change careers and employers.

"Millions of Canadians stand to benefit from access to this new low-cost pension plan with the passage of this bill."
