MEPP Commission Composition Review
A review of the composition of the Municipal Employees’ Pension Commission (the Commission) is required every five years; the last review was conducted in 2015. The Minister of Finance has appointed Rory Griffith to review the composition of the Commission. Consultations are made with stakeholders, including pensioners.
The 12 person Commission is responsible for the administration of the Municipal Employees’ Pension Plan. Currently, Commission members are appointed on behalf of employers and employees (six each). The Commission selects the Chair and Vice-Chair. The full term of office is four years; a Commission member may be appointed for two full terms.
This review will examine the current composition of the Commission to ensure it continues to be appropriate. Other administrative matters associated with the operation of the Commission will also be considered.
This review of the Commission will not examine contribution levels or the benefits provided by the Municipal Employees’ Pension Plan.
Stakeholders, including pensioners, were eligible to provide feedback on the composition of the Commission until November 2, 2020.
