Nash on pensions

Peggy Nash has released her platform on pensions and retirement security. It includes the four promises outlined in the last NDP election platform, plus a fifth policy.

In addition to upholding the NDP’s 2011 platform commitments to improve retirement security, Nash’s plan proposes to work with the provinces/territories to permit a transfer of the value of private pensions to the CPP/QPP in the event that an individual terminates employment and his/her company continues in operation or in cases where the company ceases to operate.
