Group Retirement Plans

We do group retirement plans differently.

Our Plans

As Canada’s leading independent retirement plan provider, we specialize in designing plans that align with the financial goals of your employees. Download our corporate brochure to learn how we manage group retirement plans for companies across Canada.

At Open Access, we believe investing in the future is the best way to achieve financial wellness. Our members benefit from smart investment decisions that keep their retirement goals on track.

Our retirement plans contain the winning combination of professional investment management, personalized service and financial education.

Defined Contribution Pension Plan (DCPP)

This pension plan has no pre-determined payout at retirement. Instead, payment is based on the total assets accumulated by the plan member once they retire.

Group Retirement Savings Plan (GRSP)

Like individual RRSPs, GRSPs afford employees more flexibility in their saving habits. Tax-free withdrawals are allowed under the Home Buyers’ Plan & Lifelong Learning Plan.

Deferred Profit Sharing Plan (DPSP)

This plan allows companies to share their profits with employees. A DPSP often substitutes or supplements a GRSP and is a cost-effective alternative to a DCPP.

Defined Benefit Pension Plan (DBPP)

With a DBPP, your employees receive a lifetime of retirement income, calculated on the length of their tenure and the average salary they earned.

Group Tax-Free Savings Account (GTFSA)

This is a popular savings plan that allows your employees to avoid taxes on the income and capital gains they make over time.

Many employers that have approached and engaged with Open Access have suffered from one of the following:

1) Plan design strategies are out of date.

2) Fees are high, poor performance and unsure if competitive.

3) Complex investment menus.

4) No formal education, communication and visibility of the plan.

5) Lack of engagement and participation.

6) No formal review process.

Do any of these issues currently concern you?
