Welcome to The Association of British Columbia College Pension Plan Retirees' website. As our name suggests, the CPPR represents retired members of the BC College Pension Plan, in other words retired instructors and administrators from some of BC's universities and from the Colleges and Institutes.
Our Mandate is to advocate on behalf of our members and through our affiliations with other seniors' groups on behalf of seniors in general. We also offer our members access to group insurance programs.
Please browse our site for more information and useful links, and if you are a retired member of the College Pension Plan or about to be retired, and have not already joined our association, you may download our membership application form from this site (Click on JOIN CPPR button), then complete, and mail it to us, so that you can have a voice too.

Important notices regarding proposed federal pension amendments, Bill C-27
Please read these two posts which describe a bill going into second reading which proposes to amend the Pension Benefit Standards Act of 1985 for federally regulated pensions. As the backgrounder describes, it could convert “…non-guaranteed, conditional pension benefits.” While our pensions are provincially mandated, as the notices point out, “…if passed, it will form a foothold to start weakening all provincially regulated pension plans.” This is important legislation as the notices describe very clearly.
This will be a topic at our AGM meeting, Nov 15, 2017
