Abstract

The authors find, for the most prevalent type of pension plan in Canada, that plan provisions are not a close substitute for mandatory retirement. Special retirement provis ions, which have a strong potential to discourage work, typically do not come into play before age sixty and are far from universal. The p ostponed retirement provision that has the greatest potential to disc ourage work beyond age sixty-five has been deemed an unacceptable sub stitute for mandatory retirement in those jurisdictions (Quebec, Mani toba, Government of Canada) which have banned mandatory retirement.
