Our governance model
OMERS is governed by two corporations – OMERS Sponsors Corporation and OMERS Administration Corporation – each with a separate and distinct mandate. The two corporations and their Boards work together, closely and collaboratively, to meet a singular goal: to make OMERS a sustainable, affordable and meaningful defined benefit pension plan. The Boards have adopted a joint 2025 Strategy to ensure operational alignment and a joint risk management process to promote a common understanding of, and approach to managing relevant risks.
This dual-Board, bicameral structure ensures broad input into decision-making by considering the interests of a large number of stakeholders and focused expertise in key areas, including Plan design, member and employer services and investments.
