Abstract

The paper presents the current base pension plan operating in Canada. It describes each pillar of the Canadian pension scheme. The paper demonstrates that the benefits constitute a form of citizen’s pension granted regardless of the years of service within the so-called state pension (OAS), which is granted to citizens after they reach a certain age. People are eligible for benefits after having at least 10 yearlong residency in Canada after turning 18, if they live in Canada. It also presents supplements to the pension available to the poorest pensioners. For the 1st pillar demographic factors are now the main source of threats. The article also presents the principles of the 2nd pillar (CPP), which is of redistribution-capital nature and which was seen by its creators as a supplement to the citizen’s pension, allowing to achieve a 25% replacement rate with reference to the maximum income from which social insurance contributions were taken. Overachievements of the 2nd pillar enabled implementation of the capital  component. The currently generated surpluses of incomes over expenditure in CPP allow to invest free resources in financial markets. The final part of the article present forecasts for the Canadian pension scheme, taking into account its base and supplementary parts. The significance of individual actions aimed at securing a source of income for the period following the professional career was emphasized.
