Joining the OPSEU Pension Plan - New Employer Fact Sheet

The OPSEU Pension Plan rules have changed to allow employers outside of the Ontario Public Service to join the pension plan. The employers who have the option to join fall into two categories.

Authorized Employers are employers who deliver a public service and/or perform a function on behalf of the Ontario Government.

Post-2012 receiving employers are employers who have members who were transferred in from the OPSEU Pension Plan. These employers deliver a public service and/or perform a function on behalf of the Ontario Government.

Employer Application for Post-2012 Receiving Employers and Authorized Employers

The process starts by completing the application form and sending it to OPTrust who will facilitate its delivery to the Ministry of Finance. You may also be asked to provide a letter of intent.

Once your application is received it is reviewed by the Ministry of Finance and then by OPTrust. You may be contacted to provide additional information at any stage in the process.
