Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Laurier values the role retirees play in preserving our sense of community and recognizes the importance of maintaining the existing bond with employees as they transition to retirement. 

If you are interested in past pay and tax information, access LORIS.

University Pension Plan Information

The University Pension Plan (UPP) is a jointly sponsored pension plan (JSPP) that has been created through the efforts of university administrators, faculty associations, unions and other staff across the sector. The UPP consists of three founding institutions; University of Toronto, University of Guelph and Queen’s University. For more information about the UPP, please visit the University Pension Plan website.

Laurier has been actively participating in the UPP efforts since they began in 2014 and closely following their progress. Now that the UPP has been established, Laurier is interested in further exploring the UPP with it’s union, employee and retiree groups as a viable option for long term pension sustainability.

Laurier has formed a Multi-Lateral Working Group with representatives from the various union, employee and retiree groups with the focus on building knowledge about the UPP plan design and governance structures, understanding how it compares to the Laurier Pension Plan and what steps would be required if Laurier chooses to join the UPP in the future.

Communications will be sent directly to pension plan members at the appropriate stages of this education process.

Should you have any questions about the UPP, please contact retirement@wlu.ca
