Pension Administration Committee

As trustees of the Pension Fund, the members of the PAC have fiduciary responsibility for ensuring that investments are made on a prudent basis and in accordance with the demographic profile of its members and the financial needs of the membership. The PAC is also responsible for all administrative matters pertaining to the provision of benefits as set forth in the Plan Document and acts within the framework of legislation and regulations issued under the Supplemental Pension Plans Act of the Province of Quebec and the Income Tax Act of Canada. These responsibilities are discharged through regular meetings of the PAC, and through a network of external advisors and consultants and the staff of Pension Administration and Pension Investments. During 2013, there were nine meetings of the full PAC as well as a number of informal working groups.
