Advantages of The Bâtirente Retirement System

Unions that join the Bâtirente retirement system allow their saving members to pay lower management fees by eliminating financial intermediaries. Indeed, Bâtirente Funds’ management fees are lower than those of most comparable funds. In addition, discounts are granted based on group size and accrued assets.

Bâtirente offers a variety of group membership plans and individual membership plans that will meet the specific needs of your group and members.

In addition, when you establish a Bâtirente pension plan, you contribute to the promotion of a socially responsible finance. With its shareholder engagement, Bâtirente is essentially intervening with enterprises on issues as varied as climate change, sustainable logging, board member election methods, compensation programs, the fight against corruption and advocating for southern workers’ working conditions.

How To Establish A Bâtirente Pension Fund?

To participate in the Bâtirente retirement system, labour unions need to sign agreements with the Comité syndical national de retraite Bâtirente inc. To learn more, please call us at 1 800 253-0131 or e-mail us at vasb+ongveragr.dp+pn. A Bâtirente group- annuity advisor will contact you.

All CSN members and their spouses may enroll into Bâtirente individual membership plans, even if none were established by their local unions. They may, for instance, choose to contribute to group RRSPs or to tax-free savings accounts (TFSA).

In The Case of Group Membership Plans

Bâtirente group-annuity advisors take unions through the various collective bargaining steps required to, for instance:

  • Identify the retirement plan best suited to their needs or determine the changes to be made to their existing plan.

  • Draw up the union’s demand and help union advisors to write their texts.

  • Provide required explanations to members on the occasion of general meetings or meetings of other union bodies.

  • Explain the plan to their employers and present the required administrative procedures.

  • Train union representatives on their responsibilities.

  • Organize membership campaigns when new plans are implemented or when important changes are made.

Bâtirente advisors periodically meet with union members and representatives to inform them of the evolution of their plans, of improvements made to their plans and to answer their questions.

In The Case of Individual Membership Plans

Bâtirente group-annuity advisors take unions through the various steps required to, for instance:

  • Implement payroll deduction mechanisms with employers.

  • Train union representatives on their responsibilities.

  • Explain the membership and contribution management procedure.

  • Provide required explanations to members on the occasion of general meetings or meetings of other union bodies.
