MONTREAL, Dec. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Sun Life Financial extends
congratulations to members of the National Assembly on passage of Bill
no 39, officially creating new voluntary retirement savings plans (VRSPs).
A thought leader in the VRSP space from the beginning, Sun Life
Financial applauds the work done by parliamentarians and in particular
Minister Agnès Maltais and members of the Committee on Public Finance.
"Creation of a new and innovative savings tool like the VRSP naturally
requires a thorough and meticulous legislative approach. We could
clearly see from our participation in last September's parliamentary
consultation that members were eager to create VRSPs that would best
meet the savings needs of workers and also be simple for employers. We
are very proud to have played a role in this process and look forward
to offering our VRSP to Quebec workers, starting July 1, 2014," said
Isabelle Hudon, president, Sun Life Financial, Quebec.
