Nash releases plan to increase access to pensions and retirement security

Vancouver / February 3, 2022 – Peggy Nash, MP (Parkdale—High Park) and NDP leadership candidate, today released a plan to ensure better access to pensions and retirement security for more seniors.

“It is unacceptable that 11 million working Canadians are without a workplace pension,” said Nash, “And that number is steadily rising.”

In the wake of speculation about whether the Harper Conservatives will delay the OAS (Old Age Security) eligibility age from 65 to 67, Nash says her plan is about improving access rather than reducing it.

“Instead of creating additional uncertainly for Canadians about their ability to retire securely, we need urgent and achievable solutions to this widespread problem.”

Toronto / January 26, 2022 –Peggy Nash, MP (Parkdale—High Park) and NDP leadership candidate, today put out her plan to Ensure Access to Early Childhood Education and Childcare.

“Too many families across Canada struggle to make ends meet while trying to ensure their children get the care they need,” said Nash. “My plan puts ECEC back on the federal/provincial/territorial table as an urgent social policy issue.”
