Approximately 850,000 nonprofit and charitable workers lack a workplace retirement plan, and many others are in lower-quality, high-fee plans. However, many employers in the sector find it challenging to provide a high-quality retirement plan. A coalition of prominent philanthropic foundations, nonprofit sector leaders, and retirement security experts has recently launched the Common Good initiative, to create a national, portable retirement income plan for Canada’s nonprofit and charitable sector.
The purpose of these roundtables is to convene decision-makers to learn about the Common Good initiative, as well as to discuss and solicit feedback on the proposed plan. We are also looking for employers who would be interested in offering the Common Good plan to their employees if the plan were made available. A decision about whether to move forward with the plan will be made in Fall 2018, based on the level of interest from the sector.
The Roundtable will be relevant to Executive Directors or HR/Finance leaders at nonprofits and charities of any size and sub-sector who are interested in enhancing retirement security for their employees, including organizations currently offering retirements benefits to employees, as well as those currently offering no retirement benefits.
