  2. To engage the academic community on complex pension topics.

  3. To leverage the global leadership of Canadian pension plans and consulting partners.

Success is:

  1. Establishing Canada as a source of leading pension research.

  2. Offering local pension design insights as well as globally-relevant pension investment and governance research.

  3. Opportunity to bring new members into GRI and increase engagement of existing members.



What are the objectives?


  1. Provide Innovative Solutions to Pension Challenges

    Nurturing and growing a vast platform of pension knowledge will benefit government and industry partners and lead to innovative solutions to pension design, governance, risk management, and investment challenges

  2. Create Sustainable Capacity for Academic Research Focused on Improving Retirement Savings Outcomes

    Creating a well-funded, sustainable pipeline of academic research will bring rigour and contribute to expertise within the academic community.
