Pension Appeal to be Heard in April

March 03, 2010

In November of 2007, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice released its decision in the $ 30 B pension surplus trial. The case involves three court challenges by the Canadian Association of Professional Employees, PIPSC, PSAC, the Armed Forces Pensioners'/Annuitants' Association of Canada and RCMP employee associations to pension legislation passed by the government in 1999 (Bill C-78). The decision dismissed the actions.

An appeal of this decision was filed, and CAPE has been advised that the Ontario Court of Appeals has tentatively scheduled a hearing of the appeal on April 19 and 20, 2010 in Toronto.
