Pension Breakdown: How The Finance Ministers Bungled Pension Reform

Summary: 

This study provides an analysis of the government's proposed Pooled Registered Pension Plan (PRPP) program, and asserts that it will do nothing to solve Canada’s pension crisis. The author argues that rather than proposing yet another voluntary savings scheme, the government should instead focus on expanding the CPP in order to provide all Canadians with a basic guarantee of adequate income that will protect their standard of living in retirement.
