In the News
Sign the Petition to expand CPP/QPP. “We need to do something about retirement income. Even bank economists have started to say RRSPs have failed. There’s too much risk and not enough security to ensure that, after a lifetime of work, people can retire and live out their last years in dignity. Join thousands of Canadians who are telling their Members of Parliament to increase pension benefits under the Canada and Quebec Pension Plans, and implement a fully funded plan to phase in such an increase without delay.” Ken Georgetti, President, Canadian Labour Congress.
The TEAM and IFPTE office staff wish you and your family the best of the Season and a Happy New Year.
