You asked us to modernize our approach and provide a resource tool that is easier to use, searchable and customizable. We listened! On June 1, our new Employer Administration Manual went live on omers.com. Be sure to check it out!

e-Learning is an interactive way for you to enhance your knowledge of OMERS administration at your own pace. You will be able to access e-Learning anytime and use it to test your knowledge or as resource when you need a refresher. e-learning will be rolled out over the coming months.

Annual reporting update – our best year ever!

We'd like to say a big thank-you to employers who helped make this year the best ever.

  • As of June 27, 95% of employers have completed their 2015 e-Form 119 annual reporting (52 more employers and we’ll be at 100%).
  • 263,000 members will receive their Pension Report before June 30.

Our annual reconciliation team has worked hard to make this year a success, but we couldn’t have done it without your help. Thanks!

OMERS spring employer conference

Networking, connecting, conversation, and idea-sharing are at the heart of OMERS employer conferences. For instance, one of the best practices shared by a number of participants was the importance of keeping on top of submitting forms to OMERS throughout the year. Another was to schedule regular visits to omers.com to check for news updates and changes.

Held in Sudbury on May 25, over 300 administrators attended the conference in person and via webinar connection.

Highlights included two special workshops. One was a sneak peak of the new OMERS Administration ManualThe other was a feedback forum to find out what you need from us as we move forward with a major project to significantly upgrade our pension administration system and processes. We appreciate your ideas and input.
