The Standing Committee on Government Operations, chaired by Ms. Frieda Martselos, will hold a public hearing about Bill 32: An Act to Amend the Northern Employee Benefits Services Pension Plan Act on Thursday, September 16th, 2021 at 6:00PM in Committee Room A of the Legislative Assembly building.
The Committee welcomes public feedback about this Bill.
What would the Act change?
The Northern Employee Benefits Services Pension Plan operates in both the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Each territory is responsible for legislation governing the plan. The Bill proposes changes to address administrative and regulatory issues that have arisen since the Act came into force in 2015, including powers and authorities of the pension committee and of the Minister responsible for the Act. The Bill also amends the pension committee composition, allowing for possible future expansion of the plan.

Members of the public can attend the meeting in person, or watch it on the LATV network or on ntassembly.ca, or on the Legislative Assembly’s Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter accounts.
