For millions of Canadians looking ahead to retirement, the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) has become a contentious issue. Even after the recent CPP reforms, Canadians under the age of 35 will contribute more than twice the amount they will ever receive.MoreFor millions of Canadians looking ahead to retirement, the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) has become a contentious issue. Even after the recent CPP reforms, Canadians under the age of 35 will contribute more than twice the amount they will ever receive. Will billions of dollars at stake and an entire generation hanging in the balance, we need to consider our alternatives now. In this timely volume, William B.P. Robson, Francois Vaillancourt, J.C. Herbert Emery, Kenneth J. McKenzie, Robert L. Brown, and Bev Dahlby assess the feasibility of a separate pension plan for Alberta, with an eye to the Quebec experience and recent federal reform. While an independent plan may offer certain benefits, it also comes with costs and risks, to Albertans and to Canadians at large. A Separate Pension Plan for Alberta offers compelling analysis for economists, policy-makers, and anyone concerned with the future of public pension plans in Canada.
