CARP’s polling over the years has demonstrated that the vast majority of members support a supplementary UPP or an increase to the CPP. Therefore, CARP is supportive of the proposed Ontario Retirement Pension Plan and would press for such a plan regardless of which party forms the government after the June 12th election.
Prior to the recent Ontario Budget, CARP was invited to participate on the Premier’s Technical Advisory Committee along with pension experts to provide input on a made-in-Ontario pension plan. Recently members of the Technical Advisory Committee, including CARP’s Susan Eng, were invited to meet with Kathleen Wynne to speak to the press about the ORPP.
