Pension Trustees

University of Winnipeg Retirees Association (UWRA)

The University of Winnipeg Retirees Association UWRA is entitled to appoint two Association representatives to serve as Trustees on the University of Winnipeg Pension Trusteed Board.

Each year, UWRA solicits nominations from all current members and, if an election is needed, the names of the candidates will appear on a secret ballot. Each Pension Trustee shall serve a two-year renewable term, normally commencing July 1st.

The Board of Trustees undertakes the administrative responsibilities of the University of Winnipeg Trusteed Pension Plan... each trustee understands and takes seriously the fiduciary duty they have to administer the Pension Plan prudently and in the best interest of the Pension Plan and all Plan Members and beneficiaries. An Annual Report is published by the Trusteed Board to bring Pension Plan Members up to date on their activities.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the UW Pension Trusteed Plan feel free to contact the current UWRA Pension Trustees at
