Video: Why the PRPP is a Bad Idea
Coverage of the 2011 Risk Management Conference.

The introduction of Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPPs) is one policy decision Canadians will ultimately regret according to delegates I interviewed at the 2011 Risk Management Conference in Muskoka, Ontario. I sat down to talk with Derek Dobson, CEO, CAAT Pension Plan, John Ilkiw, pension advisor, Pharos Consulting and Martin Belanger, Director of Investments, University of Western Ontario. We discussed the importance of plan member education on the value of DB plans — and we also covered the evolving pension landscape in Canada including the proposed introduction of PRPPs.
