The Alberta government has resuscitated plans for an Alberta Pension Plan. On the 21st of September, Premier Daneille Smith and the Finance Minister released a report from Lifeworks, an actuarial consultancy principally on the benefits of Alberta reclaiming a large share of the Canada Pension Plan’s assets. Pensions are central to the financial security of all Albertans and consultations under the direction of former Alberta treasurer Jim Dinning will be getting underway with a report to be presented to the government at the end of May.
