The TPPC Board of Directors, a governing body that is separate from the Sponsor Body, was established as Trustee for the Teachers’ Pension Fund.
It is their role to oversee the management of the pension plan and prudent investment of pension funds, and the direction of the TPPC.
There are eight Board members, each having fiduciary responsibilities. They were selected based on the required specialized skills outlined in the JSA.
The Directors have experience in governance, investments, finance, human resources, pensions, customer service and related administration, risk management, stakeholder involvement and regulatory matters.
Their responsibilities include, but are not limited to, acting independently of the Plan sponsors and making decisions in the best interest of all Plan beneficiaries.
The Board engaged Chair Paula McDonald as Chief Executive Officer to develop and implement the corporate strategy, transition services from the Province, recruit and develop a team, and develop a proactive organization.
Chief Investment Officer Lynn Healey, CPA, CA, and Chief Financial Officer Levi May, CPA, CA, were recruited and both joined the TPPC on September 5, 2017. They bring extensive corporate experience and financial expertise to the TPPC.
