May 2021 CAAT Webinar Recording is Available

Did you miss attending the May 4, 2021 CAAT Webinar “Resilient and Ready: Annual Report Webinar for Members and Participating Employers”? A recording of the presentation portion of the webinar (20 minutes) is available on YouTube. In their presentations, CEO Derek Dobson and newly appointed Chief Investment Officer Asif Haque discuss:

  • How CAAT is keeping your pension secure
  • How CAAT expanded service to members and employers
  • Improving access to sustainable pensions for more Canadians

According to Asif Haque, “the Plan’s investment performance was strong in 2020 despite market volatility and our long-term returns have also been strong relative to our policy benchmark and to our discount rate”. Derek Dobson, in summarizing his presentation, offered this reassurance: “Your pension is secure and the Plan is performing well. It is stronger today than it was a year ago”.

Welcome to OCRA’s New Website

Welcome to OCRA’s new website! Created by Black Cap Design, the website features a new logo, simple navigation, and a flexible design that makes it easy to view on many types of devices and browsers.

Along with the new design, the website features new content, including:

  • Expanded information about OCRA’s mission and priorities.
  • A new “About” section that describes OCRA’s history and structure.
  • An online membership application process to quickly and easily join OCRA.
  • Information for members about the CAAT Pension Plan and the College Employer Council.
