Welcome to ARIA

This is a blog from the Alliance for Retirement Income Adequacy to ensure that the ongoing pension debate, here in Canada and around the world, includes ongoing, current and meaningful discussion of the importance of adequate income in retirement.

ARIA is a discussion point for retirement income adequacy issues. In addition to talking about the value of defined benefit pension plans, we will also look at the role of defined contribution plans, Canada Pension Plan, Pooled Registered Pension Plans, RRSPs, Tax-Free Savings Accounts, and other retirement savings vehicles from Canada and around the world – and the role they play in ensuring people have enough to retire on.
