Virtual Event: Nova Scotia Teachers’ Pension Plan Consultations

In October 2020, the Province of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Teachers Union agreed to jointly appoint a committee to review the ongoing challenges facing the Teachers’ Pension Plan (TPP).

The agreement was reached outside the teachers’ collective agreement and includes an independent committee of three pension specialists. The Panel’s mandate is to review the TPP, educate and consult with stakeholders, and make non-binding recommendations to fully fund the TPP within a reasonable period of time.

The Panel will be hosting consultation sessions to speak with plan members and solicit views and feedback. Plan members are encouraged to register for a consultation session.
