Celebrating 25 years

February 09, 2015

This year marks 25 years since the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan evolved from the Teachers' Superannuation Commission. In 1990, the Ontario government established Teachers' to administer the pension plan and to manage the fund's assets.

Since then, we've grown those assets from about $17 billion to more than $140 billion. In addition, the service we offer our members continues to evolve. 

"During the past 25 years, our employees have pioneered many of the investment practices and service standards that are now common in the pension world," said Ron Mock, Teachers' President and Chief Executive Officer.  "From the use of derivatives to our presence on social media to the development of mobile applications, we're proud of our accomplishments and many firsts. But most of all, we're proud of the high ratings members give us in independent surveys, year after year."

We would like to invite you to help celebrate our 25thanniversary by sharing stories of what makes Teachers' special to you. How are we helping you plan a secure retirement? Has one of our Pension Benefits Specialists helped you in a meaningful way? What has been the biggest shift in your classroom since you started teaching?

Send us a photo from your first day on the job or your favourite classroom moments. We'll share your stories and memories with your colleagues through Pension News Online, our Facebook community and our newsletters.
