HOOPP is raising awareness about the value of defined benefit (DB) pension plans.
Our Ambassadors help dispel myths about DB pensions and explain why it’s important for all Ontarians to have access to a secure retirement.
This year, we will host roundtable sessions to discuss the latest changes in the pension landscape in Canada and how best to spread the word about DB plans.
We want everyone to know that:
- Eighty cents of every pension dollar comes from investment returns.
- DB pensioners in Ontario channel $27 billion into the provincial economy
- Fifty percent of people with alternative retirement plans have to turn to the government for financial assistance.
