What We Do

At the Sponsors Corporation (SC), we are accountable for what we call the “ABCs” of OMERS:

  • Appointments;

  • Benefits; and

  • Contributions. 

Specifically, we are solely responsible for:

  • Determining benefit levels and contribution rates for the Plans, and 

  • Setting compensation levels and appointment protocols for both the SC and OMERS Administration Corporation Boards.


The SC Board appoints members to both the SC and AC Board. For more information on the approach to appointments, please click here.

Benefits and contributions

With a focus on leading governance practices and disciplined decision-making, we are committed to supporting the financial health, relevance and long-term viability of the OMERS Plans. It is all about protecting the pension promise, with due consideration to the interests of the sponsors, stakeholders, employers and members – current and future.


Ensuring benefits and contribution rates are managed appropriately is vital to the health and long-term viability of the OMERS Pension Plans.
