New board chair selected for Nova Scotia Teachers’ Pension Plan Trustee Inc.
Halifax, NS – April 29, 2020 – John Rogers has been selected as the new Chair of the trusteeship that manages the pension plan for Nova Scotia teachers represented by the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU). The plan also includes school administrators and faculty and professional support staff at the Nova Scotia Community College. The appointment is effective July 1, 2020.
Along with the neutral Chair, the board of Teachers' Pension Plan Trustee Inc (TPPTI) is comprised of four directors appointed by the NSTU and four directors appointed by the Province of Nova Scotia. Recently, both parties authorized a search process to select a replacement for outgoing Chair John Carter, whose maximum 10-year term ends on June 30, 2020.
The NSTU and the Province thank Mr. Carter for his major contributions and dedication over the last ten years.
“I’m looking forward to continuing the work of the directors to stabilize the teachers’ pension fund and ensure its long term health,” says Rogers. “It’s crucial we work collaboratively to develop innovative solutions to protect and strengthen the retirement incomes of the more than 20,000 Nova Scotians who belong to this plan.”
