Welcome to the University Pension Plan website

Developing a jointly sponsored pension plan (JSPP) for Ontario’s university sector

University administrations, faculty associations, unions and other staff groups at University of Toronto, University of Guelph and Queen’s University have been working diligently to develop a new pension plan that would cover employees at all three universities: the University Pension Plan (UPP). Once established, the JSPP will be open to other Ontario universities joining. This will create a larger pool for sharing pension costs and risks.

This site explores some of the key elements of the JSPP solution and its advantages, as well as anticipated next steps and timing. Additional information will be posted to this site as it becomes available.
