Plan Governance

In broad terms, governance is the structure and processes used to administer a pension plan under legislation and in the best interest of Plan members.

The Disability Income Plan Advisory Council has established a review process to assess its governance practices.

The DIPAC Governance Self-Assessment Questionnaire is modeled on (and reflects) principles in the Canadian Association of Pension Supervisory Authorities (CAPSA) Pension Plan Governance Guidelines and Self Assessment Questionnaire.

This questionnaire is completed each year by a person who possesses the best knowledge of the answer to each question, and is approved by the Chair of the Council after due consultation with the Council.
