SPAF Plan Governance

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 Saskatchewan Pension Annuity Fund (SPAF) Board has established a review process to assess its governance practices.

The SPAF CAPSA Governance Self-Assessment Questionnaire is modeled on the Canadian Association of Pension Supervisory Authorities’ Pension Plan Governance Guidelines.

This questionnaire is completed each year by a person who has the best knowledge to answer each question, and is approved by the Chairperson of the Board.

Investment Policies

The Statement of Investment Policies and Goals (SIP&G) provides a framework for management of the Saskatchewan Pension Annuity Fund's assets within acceptable levels of risk.

The SIP&G decides what type of investments and in what amounts. It also provides investment managers with specific performance standards. Investment managers watch for compliance to the SIP&G and their performance is measured quarterly.
