OMERS is honoured to receive recognition for its community volunteer initiatives from New York Cares, a charity making a critical impact in the lives of at-risk New Yorkers. At its 2014 Winter Benefit, New York Cares highlighted the significant fundraising and volunteer efforts of the New York-based team of OMERS, one of Canada's largest pension plans.
OMERS announced that pensions will increase by 1.80% as of January 1, 2015. This increase reflects the change in the cost of living as measured by the Canadian Consumer Price Index (CPI).
A focus on employee engagement, health and well-being, and learning and development has earned OMERS recognition as a Best Employer in Canada for the seventh consecutive year.
Alberta Investment Management Corporation ("AIMCo") is pleased to announce that it has acquired, on behalf of its clients, a $520.3 million mortgage portfolio of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System ("OMERS").
On June 25, 2014, the OMERS Sponsors Corporation (SC), which sets contribution rates and benefits for the OMERS Primary Pension Plan (OMERS Plan), approved a change to contribution rates for normal retirement age 60 members. The rate change does not affect contribution rates of normal retirement age 65 members.
