The inspiration for this T-shirt is Danielle Smith’s bid to take Albertans out of the Canada Pension Plan.
A universal pension plan for all Canadians brings numerous advantages. Firstly, it ensures fairness and inclusivity, offering a reliable retirement income to everyone regardless of their employment sector. The system’s risk-pooling feature spreads financial risks across a diverse population, providing stability and security for retirees.
A shared pension plan also promotes efficiency by reducing administrative complexities and associated costs. Consistent standards eliminate disparities in retirement benefits, fostering social cohesion. Moreover, the plan’s national impact positively influences the economy, supporting consumer spending and reducing the burden on social assistance programs.
The simplicity and portability of a unified plan make retirement planning straightforward for individuals, allowing easy adjustments when moving or changing jobs. Lastly, a universal pension plan can be designed with a long-term perspective, ensuring sustainability and adaptability to the evolving needs of an aging population. In essence, a shared pension plan stands as a pillar of financial security, simplicity, and equity for all Canadians in their retirement years.

“Scale allows a larger fund to lower costs, which translates into better results. Over the past decade, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) averaged 10-per-cent annual returns, well above the 7.2-per-cent yearly gains posted by the Alberta Investment Management Corp. (AIMCo), which oversees public-sector pensions and other funds in the province. With $575-billion in assets, CPPIB is roughly four times the size of AIMCo.”
