At the annual Canadian Chamber of Commerce Convention held digitally on October 26, on the first day, the Surrey Board of Trade won the support of 450 chambers of commerce and boards of trade in Canada on their policy to instigate change on pension innovation.
“There are 10 million Canadian workers who are not members of a private sector pension plan,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade. “There is very clear evidence that there needs to be a re-charged pension plan that meets the demands of today’s socio-economic paradigm. Canada has suffered from stagnated innovation in its retirement income system.”
The Surrey Board of Trade recommends that the Federal Government modernize and innovate the federal pension program for Canadian businesses and citizens.
