Abstract

In 1997 the federal government introduced major changes to the Canadian Pension Plan (CPP). A major feature of there changes is a significant increase over the next ten years in the permiums to be paid by employers and employees. This study uses the FOCUS model of the Canadian economy to examine the macroeconomic impacts of these premium increases and to investigate some alternatives.
