Plan Governance Requirements -

Trends from the East Coast

Although a robust governance framework has always been crucial to effectively operate a pension plan until recently, it was generally left up to plan sponsors to decide on the specifics of their plan’s governance structure. However, many provincial regulators have begun to require formal governance frameworks to be put in place for pension plans across the country. The New Brunswick regulator was the most recent to do so. Although such requirements don’t yet exist in all jurisdictions, it appears as though this trend will likely continue and there may be such requirements in the future for all plans. During this session, we’ll talk with both DB and DC plan sponsors along with a pension consultant about their current governance structures, what they are doing to prepare for future governance requirements, and what concepts remain ‘best practice’ in good plan governance.
