2016 Agreement Respecting Multi-Jurisdictional Pension Plans

The Agreement was signed by British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Québec and Saskatchewan. It applies to pension plans that are under the jurisdiction of any of those governments and that have members and beneficiaries subject to the legislation of more than one of those governments. The Agreement has effect from 1 July 2016.

For the provinces party to the Agreement, it replaces the:

  • Memorandum of Reciprocal Agreement, which had applied since 1968 to pension plans for which member benefits had been governed by the laws of those governments
  • 2011 Agreement Respecting Multi-Jurisdictional Pension Plans between Québec and Ontario.
