Fraser Institute Media Advisory: New Analysis on the Expanded Canada Pension Plan's Rate of Return Coming Thursday, July 14

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - July 13, 2016) - On Thursday, July 14, with ratification of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) expansion agreement between the provinces and Ottawa expected later this week, the Fraser Institute will release a new analysis of the CPP's rate of return, particularly for younger workers.

Among other things, the analysis Rate of return for expanded CPP remains meagre, clearly differentiates the individual rates of return received by Canadian workers from the CPP and the separate rate of return earned by the CPP's investment arm, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board-two rates that are often confused by commentators.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on July 14 at 5:30 a.m. (Eastern).
