Origin

(December 22, 2017) Report from the Treasurer and City Solicitor

Summary

This report seeks authority to revise and re-enact the texts of the by-laws governing the Civic Employee's Pension Plan (currently  By-law 380-74, as amended, of the former City of Toronto), the Metropolitan Toronto Pension Plan (currently By-law 15-92, as amended, of the former Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto) and the Metropolitan Toronto Police Benefit Fund (currently By-law 181-81, as amended, of the former Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto), all of which now pertain to pension plans sponsored by the City as a result of the 1998 amalgamation of the City of Toronto.  The revisions will in each case take into account all amendments made since the last revision and re-enactment, correct some clerical errors, delete some provisions which are no longer relevant, and bring the text into harmony with the Plans' current administrative practices.  These re-enactments are a requirement of the Pension Transfer Agreements to be entered into between the City and OMERS for the merger of those Plans into the OMERS Primary Plan, as recently authorized by City Council, and will assist OMERS in implementing the mergers.
