4 Jul 2008 Canada Scheme Issues & Trends, Countries - excl. European Union and US
After a modest gain in 2005, membership in employer registered pension plans (RPPs) resumed normal growth in 2006, entirely the result of increases among women. Canada's 18,594 employer sponsored registered pension plans added 77,700 new members in 2006, representing a growth of 1.4% and taking total membership to 5.8 million. In 2005, these plans added only about 20,000 people, a pace of growth that was substantially slower than annual gains recorded since the turn of the millennium. Gains in 2006 were distributed evenly between the public sector, which added 39,400 members, and the private sector, which added 38,300, despite the fact that the public sector only accounts for less than 10% of all registered pension plans. Most levels of government in the public sector added members during the period. However, the growth in the membership of these plans has still been far slower than the rate of growth of paid workers as measured by Statistics Canada's Labour Force Survey. Consequently, there has been a continuous decline of the proportion of paid workers with a registered pension plan. In 2006, 38.1% of paid workers had a registered pension plan, down marginally from 38.5% in 2005. During this period, coverage for women increased, while membership of men declined.

Income Security and Stability During Retirement in Canda
Income Security and Stability During Retirement in Canda
Statistics Canada
10 Mar 2008 Canada Savings, Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General
Research by Statistics Canada tracks individuals as they reach age 55, through their retirement years, to find out their long-term income stability. For workers with average incomes, family income falls after age 60 until age 68 when it stabilizes at approximately 80% of the income level at age 55. However, workers on low incomes experience little change from age 55 through their retirement years. Those on high incomes see a dramatic fall when they enter retirement.

Pensions and retirement savings of families
Pensions and retirement savings of families
Statistics Canada
Nov 2007 Canada Scheme Issues & Trends, Savings, Pensioners & Retirement

Prime-aged couples experienced a moderate decline in Registered Pension Plan (RPP) coverage over the last two decades, as the substantial growth in wives' labour market participation and the slight increase in their RPP coverage only partially offset a substantial decline in husbands' coverage. On average, retirement savings of families rose over the last two decades, but the distribution became more unequal. To a large extent, the uneven growth in retirement savings mirrors the sharp increase in family earnings inequality since the early 1980s.
