"The objective of this paper is to seek views on the most appropriate means of enhancing the legislative and regulatory framework for registered pension plans subject to the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985 (the Act). It covers both defined benefit and defined contribution plans, and includes: i) issues on which there has been widespread consultation and support from most stakeholders; ii) issues where there is less consensus and where there is a need for further consultation; and iii) new topics for discussion. The paper also discusses issues pertaining to multi-employer pension plans and other elements of the pension framework. In addition, the paper is seeking the views of Canadians on the investment regulations applying to pension plans governed by the Act. Any structural changes arising from this consultation will need to consider the Act and the framework as a whole." Introduction, p. 3-4
