Improved Funding Framework for Nova Scotia Pension Plans: The Road Forward (PDF)

The Government of Nova Scotia released a discussion paper in fall 2017 called Pension Funding Framework Review and other issues affecting pension plans. Following the close of the consultation, a summary of feedback was released in spring 2018 called Pension Funding Framework Review: What We Heard. To promote a more stable and predictable regulatory environment for pension plans, Government is moving forward with some significant changes to the regulatory framework.

Nova Scotia’s Department of Finance and Treasury Board is seeking input from stakeholders as we determine the best road forward for regulatory provisions. A paper has been developed with an overview of the legislative and regulatory changes being made. Input is being sought on technical regulatory changes identified in the paper with the goal of determining the best road forward. To ensure that your views are considered, please submit your feedback by June 21, 2019.
