February holiday in Nova Scotia: information for PSAC members in the federal public sector

December 15, 2014 • Nova Scotia

We have had many inquiries from PSAC members about Viola Desmond Day in Nova Scotia, which is coming up on February 16th, 2015.

The third Monday in February is now a provincial holiday in Nova Scotia, similar to Family day in British-Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Prince Edward Islanders also have a provincial holiday in February called Islander Day – Manitobans, likewise, have Louis Riel Day.

Pension plan update

December 11, 2014 • New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador

The Conservative government is planning to introduce legislation that would allow for the conversion of defined benefit plans to target benefit plans. The legislation would affect federally regulated pensions for workers and retirees at Crown Corporations like Canada Post and Nav Canada, as well as airport authorities, among others. 

The change from defined benefit to target benefit would mean that employees would not know with any certainty what their pension benefits would be in retirement.  Current retirees could see their promised benefits reduced.
