The Ontario government's proposed Ontario Retirement Pension Plan (ORPP) is a mandatory pension plan which would target small businesses and their employees.

Get the facts on the pension tax:

  • Affected businesses would be hit with up to $1,643 per employee, per year in new payroll taxes, starting in 2017.
  • Affected employees would have up to $1,643 per year extra deducted from their pay cheques, and it would take 40 years for them to see the full pension benefits.
  • All of these costs would be shouldered exclusively by small businesses and their employees.
  • The unemployment rate in Ontario would rise by 0.5%, and there would be a reduction in wages over the longer term.
  • Public sector and big business employees who already have registered Defined Benefit and/or Defined Contribution Pension Plans will not be asked to pay into the plan.
