Legislative and regulatory reforms have recently been fast and furious. More pension and benefit related cases than ever are working their way through the system. In the face of such change, employers and plan administrators must be ready to act, making adjustments to plan design and administration.

• Introduction of the administrative monetary penalty regime in Ontario
• Handling death benefit claims and beneficiary entitlements
• Preparing for extended Employment Insurance parental benefits
• Defined benefit solvency funding reforms
• Defined contribution plan governance
• Medical marijuana in the workplace and under benefit plans
• Benefit plan continuation for disabled employees
