The Canadian Federation of Pensioners (CFP) mission is to bring together Retiree Groups to advocate on behalf on defined benefit pension plans and issues from a pensioner’s point of view.

Created in 2005,  the Canadian Federation of Pensioners is currently focusing on the country wide need to improve the long term security of single employer defined benefit pension plans (DB plans) by:

  • Advocating with Governments, Political Parties and Regulatory bodies to bring into focus issues with current pension and retirement legislation
  • Participating in government, industry and other related forums that have been formally established to review issues and challenges with DB plans; and
  • Speaking on pensioner issues with respect to current Canadian legislation when an employer’s business is sold or merged, declared insolvent, bankrupt or is forced to wind-up, and the pension plan is underfunded.
