OMERS at a Glance

With $72 billion in net assets at December 31, 2014, OMERS (Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System) is one of Canada's leading pension funds.

We manage a diversified global portfolio of stocks and bonds as well as real estate, infrastructure and private equity investments. 

OMERS was established in 1962 to serve local government employees across Ontario. Today, we represent 974 employers and more than 450,000 members, retirees and survivors, including:  

  •  Municipal workers
  • Children's Aid Society workers
  • Firefighters
  • Emergency Services staff
  • Police
  • School Board staff (non-teaching)
  • Transit workers
  • Hydro workers  

Our commitment is two-fold: to ensure that current pensions are paid in full and on time; and to prepare for the future, when today's new employees retire. 

OMERS continues on a path of steady growth: growth in assets under management and growth in membership, supported by a strong vision for a secure, sustainable and prosperous future.
