City of Mississauga | 4 years

I work in an organization that makes an impact in people’s lives every day. We are a service provider for residences that focuses on delivering high-quality customer service and developing an inclusive and accessible City for all.​

In my retirement, I want to spend time with my family and friends, give back to my community through volunteering and travel to parts of the world I haven’t seen. For this, I need to be able to retire financially stable. This is why I value having a pension plan, like OMERS, that works so well for me. I have been lucky enough to pay into OMERS since I was 23 years old with my part-time position and now my full-time position.

What I look forward to most in retirement is being able to fill my days with my passions and my family. I enjoy nothing more than a relaxing morning with a nice walk with family/friends and a coffee in my hand.

Travelling to Tanzania is the number-one item currently on my bucket list. As teenagers, my best friend and I always dreamed about it! Once I get there, I will definitely climb Mount Kilimanjaro!​

Social Value of the Plan

The OMERS defined benefit plan isn’t just important to our members. Research confirms that the OMERS Plan generates social and economic value for communities in Ontario, underscoring the importance of preserving OMERS as a defined benefit pension plan.
