The McGill University pension plan is appointing Sun Life Financial to provide administration services in collaboration with consultancy Normandin Beaudry.

This is the second of the university’s plans to join Sun Life following its service employees union plan in 1996. In addition, with about 10,000 members, the plan is the largest in the province for which the insurer provides administration services.
