Toronto Zoo | 38 years

We are here for conservation. As a result of disease in the 70s and 80s, herd numbers dropped significantly. We have a natural breeding wood bison program that we are running here at the Toronto Zoo with herds in the wild. We are trying to bring the numbers back.

I’ve been a member for 38 years and it is great to know that my pension will be ready to go when I am.

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.
