History & Mandate

The OPSEU Pension Trust officially began operating on January 1, 1995. The Board of Trustees of the OPSEU Pension Plan Trust Fund administers the OPSEU Pension Plan and is responsible for investing the Plan's assets to support the cost of members' and retirees' pension benefits.

The OPSEU Pension Plan was created to provide members and pensioners with a say in their pension plan through joint trusteeship. The Plan is jointly sponsored by the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). OPTrust is a legal trust that was formed by an agreement between the sponsors and exists at arm's length from both OPSEU and the Government.


Since the launch of OPTrust in 1995, we have worked to provide service and security to the members and pensioners of the OPSEU Pension Plan. Our mandate reflects three key objectives:

  • Generating a long-term rate of return on investments that supports our pension promise
  • Delivering the finest service and communications to our members and pensioners
  • Ensuring members and pensioners have a real voice in the Plan, through joint trusteeship
