The Alberta government released a long-awaited report Thursday on the possibility of establishing an Alberta-only pension plan, claiming the province is entitled to a staggering $334-billion asset transfer from the Canada Pension Plan in 2027.

That’s more than half of the fund’s estimated total net assets. The third-party report, compiled by consultant LifeWorks, attributes the figure to Alberta’s high employment rates, young population, and higher pensionable earnings, which it claims has meant the province has sent billions more into the CPP compared to what it has received.
