Session Descriptions

The CPBI Ontario London Chapter is back with its annual Spring Pension and Benefits Update!

>> Pension and Benefits Legal Update (9:00am – 10:00am)

In the last few years, reforms to pension and employment legislation have been coming at a break neck speed. More pension and benefit related cases than ever are working their way through the system. In the face of such change, employers and plan administrators must be ready to act, making adjustments to plan design and administration to manage risks, opportunities, and cost.

She assists clients with ongoing pension plan administration and governance as well as plan mergers, corporate transactions, and member communications.
