The Municipal Pension Plan (MPP) is a public sector, defined benefit, multi-employer pension plan serving 395,000 members across several sectors including local government, health, education, and social services. It is the largest public sector pension plan in British Columbia and the sixth-largest defined benefit pension plan in Canada, with more than $70 billion in assets. The Plan is governed by the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees, a 32-member governing body appointed by Plan employers and Plan members, representing the interests of the beneficiaries. The Board and its committees are supported on administrative and technical matters by the Office of the Municipal Pension Plan Board of Trustees. Day-to-day pension administration is provided by the BC Pension Corporation.
