Learn about your CPP investment & its climate impact
If you’re 18 or over and earning at least C$3,500 a year, you are an investor in Canada’s Pension Plan (CPP).
By law, your employer must take 5.1% from your salary, match it and then remit it to the Canada Pension Plan to be invested for your future retirement.
You and 20 million other Canadians invest in and benefit from the Canada Pension Plan. At the end of its financial year – March 31, 2019 – it was worth C$392 billion.
And did you know that the CPP asset base is larger than Canada’s annual budget?
