Description of the arrangement with the foreign principal
The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan is jointly sponsored by the Ontario government, through the Minister of Education, and the executive of the Ontario Teachers' Federation (OTF). The OTF represents teachers, while the government represents employers. OTF and the government are equally responsible for ensuring the pension plan has enough money to meet its long-term pension obligations. In addition, they appoint experienced, professional experts to the pension plan's Board. An eleven-member Board, appointed by OTF and the government, oversees the management of the pension plan. Board members are required to act independently of both the plan sponsors and management, and to make decisions in the best interests of all plan beneficiaries. Day-to-day investment management and plan administration is delegated to the President & CEO and his staff.
