University Pension Plan (UPP) is a new jointly sponsored pension plan (JSPP) and the first of its kind in Ontario’s university sector. We currently serve members and retirees at Queen’s University, University of Guelph and University of Toronto – and eventually, other Ontario universities and their members who wish to join.
We’re proud to join other globally-recognized Ontario JSPPs in building a secure future for our members while helping to strengthen the future of our defined benefit pension plan for generations of university employees to come. We are here to protect the stability of our members’ pensions, provide excellence in member service, invest responsibly, and – importantly – as a JSPP, give our members a voice in their plan. That’s our pension promise.
July 1, 2021 marked our ‘Day One’ and the beginning of our journey to bring UPP’s vision to life. We are ready to step into our role and excited for the road of opportunities ahead.
