e-2039 (Pension system)

Initiated by Gerry Tiede from Surrey, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Canadians throughout their working years have individually contributed to their pensions, and their employers have contributed to those pensions as deferred wages;
  • Canadians who have defined benefit pension plans should not live in fear that their earned benefits might be reduced when they are in their most vulnerable senior years; and
  • Canadians who have worked and contributed to defined benefit pension plans should be protected from the loss of their pensions through bankruptcy or mismanagement of their pension administration and investments.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to to promote and protect earned pensions for all Canadians in the future, to withdraw Bill C-27, and to establish a national pension insurance program to ensure that seniors can live with financial security.
