Given their ageing populations, OECD countries are beginning to re-examine the balance between public and private provisions for income in retirement. There is considerable interest in increasing the contribution from private sources. However, while there is abundant documentation on and analysis of public pensions systems, much less is known about the performance of private plans. This volume, one of a series of national case studies, describes the characteristics of private arrangements in Canada. Their prevalence, structure, financing and administration, tax treatment, regulation, and effects on the distribution of retirement income are all discussed in detail.
