C.D. Howe Institute The C.D. Howe Institute is a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that aims to improve Canadians’ standard of living by fostering sound economic and social policy. The Institute promotes the application of independent research and analysis to major economic and social issues affecting the quality of life of Canadians throughout the country. It takes a global perspective by considering the impact of international factors on Canada and bringing insights from other jurisdictions to the discussion of Canadian policy. Recommendations in the Institute’s publications are founded on quality research conducted by leading experts and subject to rigorous peer review. The Institute communicates clearly the analysis and recommendations arising from its work to the general public, the media, academia, experts, and policymakers. The Institute began life in 1958 when a group of prominent business and labour leaders organized the Private Planning Association of Canada to research and promote educational activities related to public economic and social policy. The PPAC renamed itself the C.D. Howe Research Institute in 1973 following a merger with the C.D. Howe Memorial Foundation, an organization created in 1961 to memorialize the Right Honourable Clarence Decatur Howe. In 1981, the Institute adopted its current name after the Memorial Foundation again became a separate entity to focus more directly on memorializing C.D. Howe. The C.D. Howe Institute celebrated its 50th Anniversary as the gold standard for Canadian public policy research in 2008. The Institute encourages participation in and support of its activities from business, organized labour, associations, the professions, and interested individuals. For further information, please contact the Institute’s Development Officer. The Chairman of the Institute is David Dodge; William B.P. Robson is President and Chief Executive Officer. C.D.

Foreword Although financial crisis and economic slump are far from ideal developments to pique interest in saving and post-retirement income, the attention Canadians are now paying to the country’s contractual and voluntary pension system is long overdue. Two of the national pension system’s pillars are in relatively good shape. The first pillar – the safety-net system of Old Age Security and
