Interpretive Guidelines

Interpretive Guidelines Consultation Process

As a result of the revised Employment Pension Plans Act and Regulation taking effect September 1, 2014, we are introducing Interpretive Guidelines to replace all of our Policy Bulletins. As we develop the new guidelines, we will post them to this page in draft form, for a 60-day consultation period. Each new posting will be accompanied by an E-Update notice via email.

Please note: the old Policy Bulletins have been removed from this website. If you have any questions, please contact Pensions

We encourage all of our stakeholders to take the opportunity to review these guidelines and provide comments within the 60-day period provided for each guideline. In order to receive these E-Updates, please subscribe to our E-Update service.

All submissions received by the end of the consultation period will be reviewed and any changes and clarifications that are necessary will be made and a final version of each guideline will be posted. 

Please submit your comments via email by the deadline indicated with each release of drafts to:, using the Subject Line “Interpretive Guidelines Consultation".
