Petition to expand the CPP/QPP


Petition to expand the CPP/QPP

We need to do something about retirement income. Even bank economists have started to say RRSPs have failed.There’s too much risk and not enough security to ensure that, after a lifetime of work, people can retire and live out their last years in dignity. Too many of today’s seniors live in poverty and too many older workers are realizing their retirement plans have come up short because the investment return were promised never to materialized or they simply could not save enough on their own.The financial services industry pays itself juicy fees to manage your money and that eats up a big part of your retirement  savings-if you have any retirement savings left when you are ready to retire, after  the roller coaster dips and dives of the stock market.

The best way to help today’s workers save enough money for tomorrow is by increasing what everybody gets from the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) as a share of their total retirement income.

Expanding the CPP is about preparing for the future, and leaving behind a better system for our kids.

Join thousands of Canadians who are telling their Members of Parliament to increase pension benefits under the Canada and Quebec Pension Plans, and implement a fully funded plan  to phase in such a increase without delay.
