About OPB

Who We Are

Ontario Pension Board (OPB) is the administrator of the Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP or the Plan) – a major defined benefit pension plan sponsored by the Government of Ontario. Our membership base is comprised of certain employees of the provincial government and its agencies, boards and commissions. Our commitment is to protect the long-term sustainability of the Plan, invest assets astutely and with discipline, keep contribution levels stable and affordable, and deliver exceptional service to our stakeholders.

With $24.4 billion in assets, 41,939 members, 37,985 retired members and 5,619 former members, the PSPP is one of Canada’s largest pension plans. It is also one of the country’s oldest pension plans, successfully delivering the pension promise since the early 1920s.

Who We Serve

OPB serves:

  • PSPP members, retired members and employers (“clients”); and
  • other key stakeholders (the Plan Sponsor, bargaining agents and the citizens of Ontario).

About Your Plan

The PSPP is a defined benefit pension plan designed to enhance the financial security of its members. Retired members receive a pension benefit based on a pre-set (defined) formula. That formula takes into account each member’s earnings history and years of service with the Plan. To fund the pension promise, both members and employers make contributions to the Plan.

Our Promise

To use innovative solutions and strategies to:

  • protect the long-term sustainability of the Plan;
  • invest the Plan’s assets to maximize returns within acceptable risk parameters;
  • keep contribution levels reasonably stable and affordable; and
  • deliver superior, cost-effective service to clients and stakeholders so that they can realize the full value of their participation in the Plan.
