The Supreme Court of Canada released its much awaited for decision in re Indalex  on February 1, 2013.  Has the decision resolved all the issues that may arise when an insolvency employer has a pension plan with wind-up liability?  Are there unanswered questions?  Can the decision be confined to its particular facts?  Did the Supreme Court provide the clarity practitioners were seeking?  There are definitely numerous questions on the mind of stakeholders who deal with companies that provide defined benefit pension plans and practitioners in pension law. The OBA Pension and Benefits Section has lined up a panel of speakers to discuss the significance of the decision and the implications of the decision from the perspectives of different stakeholders.   In particular,

  • What is the impact of the decision on a plan sponsor and its lenders?
  • What are the obligations of an employer/administrator in a conflict of interest position that may arise in similar circumstances? 
  • What can plan members do to protect their pensions?
