Bill 31 Overturns Mandatory Retirement Age

Bill 31 overturns mandatory retirement age legislation in British Columbia.  This act comes into force January 1, 2008. If you turn 65 before then, you may have to retire.  It depends on the language of your contract.

At Vancouver Public library, those who turn 65 after January 1, 2008 may continue to work at the library.  These people can continue to pay into their pensions without a hiccough.

We will post more information as the various applications of this bill are challenged or put into practice.
