Effective March 1, 2015, OMERS will eliminate the administration fee for all service buy-back purchases and the first Statement of Family Law Value issued by request in the event of the breakdown of a memberâs spousal relationship.
OMERS Private Equity ("OPE"), the private equity investment arm of OMERS, has entered into an agreement to sell Canadian healthcare IT firm Logibec Inc. to US private equity firm GI Partners. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. OPE will continue to hold Logibec's current US subsidiary MatrixCare, the industry leading Electronic Health Record provider for long-term care and senior living providers, pursuant to a pre-closing spin out transaction.
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.
