We are retired persons who are receiving a Municipal Pension and we previously were employed as:
We, the MPRA are your voice in what happens to your Pension. We speak on behalf of all retirees with the Board of Trustees on the Pension Board to try to keep the benefits that you already have. We were instrumental in:
2023 COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT
At the November 16, 2022, meeting of the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees, approval was given to a cost-of-living adjustment of 6.9% effective January 1, 2023.
“2023 Cost-of-Living Adjustment: The board approved a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) to regular pensions in pay of 6.9 per cent, effective January 1, 2023. This is the equivalent to the increase in the Canadian consumer price index (CPI) between September 2021 and September 2022.”
We want to thank the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees for recognizing the impact of the increasing Consumer Price Index on retirees in making this decision.
We at the MPRA are hoping to increase our Membership to 20,000 members as a goal so that the government, the union of BC Municipalities and the Union Leadership will support our issues. These parties need to know the ideas and issues of the Retirees so with a larger number we can present a stronger voice.
Our Dues deduction program is an automatic deduction from your March Pension Payment each year, ensuring that your annual dues are paid on time every year without any hassle of sending a cheque or receiving an invoice. (MPP Members only)
