  • Restricted Surplus Regulation Approved

    May 23, 2018

    On May 16, 2018, the Lieutenant Governor in Council approved a Regulation to disburse the restricted surplus held in the Pension Adjustment Account over a five-year period commencing with the Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) granted effective July 1, 2018. The final regulation was unchanged from the regulation submitted by the Board to the Province on June 28, 2017.

    The restricted surplus disbursal will increase the 2018 COLA by 0.20%, resulting in a total COLA of 1.35% effective July 1, 2018. The balance of the restricted surplus will be disbursed in equal amounts over the following four years, ending with the COLA effective July 1, 2022. We estimate that COLA would increase by a further 0.17% on average from 2019 to 2022, for a cumulative increase of between 0.8% and 0.9% by the end of the five-year disbursal period. Actual increases will, however, depend on the economic and demographic conditions that occur during the disbursal period.
