The Multi-Employer Benefit Plan Council of Canada
MEBCO was established in 1992 as a federal no-share capital corporation, operating on a not-for-profit basis. MEBCO represents the interests of Canadian multi-employer pension and benefits plans with provincial and federal governments regarding proposed or existing legislation and policies affecting these plans.
Our Board of Directors serve MEBCO on a volunteer basis, and are responsible for identifying issues that impact multi-employer plans, developing a strategy to address those issues, and then carrying out this strategy. They are elected representatives from all persons and disciplines involved in multi-employer plans, including union and employer trustees, professional third party administrators, non profit or "in-house" plan administrators, actuaries, benefit consultants, lawyers, and chartered accountants.
We carry out our mandate in a number of ways:
- By advocating our position on behalf of multi-employer plans before administrative tribunals, provincial and federal governments, and their agencies.
- By intervening and participating in proceedings before courts or other judicial bodies.
- By preparing and presenting reports, studies, and submissions on matters of importance to our members.
