Annual Webinar on benefit security and the CAAT Plan’s continued sustainability
Although 2019 was an exceptional year for the Fund’s performance, recent events have dramatically changed the near-term outlook for the Canadian and global economies.
Message from Derek W. Dobson, Chief Executive Officer and Plan Manager – March 26, 2020
Although the COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting our lives and investment markets, you can rest assured your benefit is secure and pensions will be paid on time. The lifetime pension you have earned is not affected by investment market fluctuations.
The CAAT Pension Plan takes very seriously its fiduciary responsibility to the over 65,000 plan members that we work for. In carrying out all of the Plan’s investment decisions, we are guided by the three core principles of our Responsible Investing Policy:
Annual return of 16% net of investment management fees
The CAAT Pension Plan’s financial results, released today, confirm that the Plan is well-funded and has ample reserves to weather the recent investment market downturn. The Plan has been steadily building reserves over the past decade, consistent with the focus on benefit security.

Toronto, March 10, 2020 – The CAAT Pension Plan stands 118% funded on a going-concern basis, with $2.9 billion in funding reserves, based on its latest actuarial valuation as of January 1, 2020.
