Message from the Chair: Pensions & Benefits Law wants you!

Dear Section Members,

The CBA National Pensions & Benefits Law Section is Canada’s leading association of pensions and benefits lawyers. We contribute to national policy, advocate for the harmonization of pension laws and respond to legislative initiatives. Our members get access to the latest resources, submissions, programs, news and articles. Check out our website and find out who’s on the 2016-2017 executive.

We are looking for committee members and other volunteers. We need your help to prepare submissions and programs that reflect the full range of member perspectives. We value diversity and encourage young lawyers and members from a variety of practice settings, including in-house counsel, to join.

We have three committees currently looking for volunteers:

  • Advocacy and Government Relations: prepare submissions to government, agencies and others
  • Communications: solicit, prepare, recommend and review content for the website, including articles, case law discussions, legislative updates and links of interest
  • Professional Development: develop, organize and present professional development programs of high academic quality, interest and practical application for pension and benefit lawyers

We are also looking for volunteers to work on special projects and activities.

Please contact Inika Anderson by Oct. 31 to join a committee or get involved.


All members are encouraged to join our CBA National Pensions and Benefits Law Section LinkedIn group.

Keep up-to-date with recent articles and new legal developments in pensions and benefits law from the federal government and jurisdictions across Canada.


We’ve been busy. Check out our recent submissions:

I look forward to hearing from you.
