At the SC, we believe that good governance is the foundation for effective Plan management. To successfully fulfill the SC’s mandate under the OMERS Act, 2006, we have developed a range of effective policies and practices with input and advice from expert third-party advisors.

This includes formal protocols related to the nomination, appointment and reappointment of Directors for both the OAC and SC Boards. The intent is to select qualified candidates to provide effective oversight based on, among other things, their considerable experience, proven competencies, sector knowledge, and commitment to the DB pension model.
