Newsletter no. 01-2, Joint Annual Information Return - New Participating Pension Supervisory Authority

February 21, 2001

On May 15, 1995, we at the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency issued Newsletter No. 95-4, New Filing Requirements for the Registered Pension Plan Annual Information Return. In that Newsletter, we provided information on a new joint annual information return (AIR) with the pension supervisory authorities for the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia.

Since then, we have developed joint AIR's with the following authorities:

These joint AIR's are part of an ongoing initiative between the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency and the Canadian Association of Pension Supervisory Authorities to reduce the administrative burden on pension plan administrators and the cost of regulatory programs.

Subsection 8409(2) of the Income Tax Regulations will be amended to reflect the agreements reached with these three provinces concerning annual information returns.

Need more information?

If you need a copy of a joint AIR or if you need to discuss questions on an AIR about provincial pension benefits legislation, please contact your supervisory authority.
