The Alberta/British Columbia Joint Expert Panel on Pension Standards is inviting written submissions on how best to ensure pension plans continue to benefit workers, employers and investors in the two provinces.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 29, 2008.

The panel will conduct a full and independent public review of private sector pension standards in Alberta and B.C., and will present its findings and recommendations to both provinces’ finance ministers by the end of September 2008.

The expert panel was appointed in October by the governments of Alberta and B.C. and is comprised of three representatives from each province.

Last year, Ontario set up an expert commission to review the province’s pension legislation. To check out our special section, The Ontario Expert Commission on Pensions, click here.
