The Ontario government has signaled its interest in reforming Ontario’s public sector pension plans, and appears to be closing in on a new framework for university pensions in the province. In order to develop an informed response to government proposals, faculty members need a full understanding of the potential impact these government actions could have on their financial futures.

To this end, OCUFA has worked with industry experts to develop two educational webcasts intended for faculty association representatives and leaders. The sessions will be interactive and tailored to meet the information needs of these individuals.

Space for these webcasts is limited, and participants must sign up in advance. In the box below, select the time that works best – for each of the webcasts – and click on it to register online.

Once registered, participants will receive an email with the information needed to access the webcast.

Registration for each session will remain open until all available spaces are booked or until 60 minutes before its starting time, whichever comes first. The webinars are intended for faculty association members from Ontario.
