When we transitioned from being employees of the Government of Alberta to being employees of the College on April 1, 1998, the Government declared that we would stay in the two pension plans that we had previously been members of to ensure we had no loss of pension benefits. These two plans are identical to those of Government employees and each have different employer and employee contribution rates.
