In the tables, employers that do not fall within a designated category are grouped as “Other Employer”. These include, for example, local boards of municipalities, economic development corporations and associations representing OMERS members.
The tables also make reference to members who are not currently contributing to the OMERS Primary Pension Plan (“OMERS Plan”), and these include the following types of members:
- Retired – Retired members and survivors receiving a monthly pension
- Deferred – Members who left their OMERS employer but kept their pension in the OMERS Plan
- Disability waiver – Members with an injury or illness who continue to earn
- Divested – Members divested from an OMERS employer to another non-OMERS employer that has a registered pension plan
Please note that the information shown in the tables is based on data collected at the time employers join OMERS or when employer by-laws are updated. For presentation purposes and where feasible, membership information has been adjusted by OMERS to best reflect the employer category in which they are employed.
The information presented is not used for pension administration purposes. The information should not be relied upon for any other purpose than to provide a general indication of the distribution of OMERS membership by employer categories.
