The three pension plans

There are three pension plans at the University of Victoria:

Each plan covers different employee groups.  Membership to any of the plans is determined by the terms of the Plan Documents, and enrollment is administered by the Human Resources department. If you need help to determine which of the three plans you belong to, please visit which plan do I belong to? or contact us
