Funding relief for the Canada Post pension plan

On June 23, 2017 the Government of Canada brought in changes to The Pension Benefits Standards Regulations, 1985. They provide federally regulated pension plans with relief from the need to make special payments into their pension plan.

As a result of this regulatory change, Canada Post does not expect to have to make special payments in 2018, provided that market conditions remain constant.
