UPP Engagement on Member Experience and Responsible Investing

When University Pension Plan (UPP) launched this summer, we spoke of the importance of members’ voices in shaping who we become.

We are at a crucial stage—building our long-term foundations, exploring our pension support and member engagement approaches, and further defining our investment roadmap. As we evolve, we want to be there for you – in the ways you need, at the times that matter – today and tomorrow. For that, we need to understand what matters most to you.

This Fall and Winter, we invite you to a two-part conversation on the themes of Member Experience and Responsible Investing, detailed below.

Member Experience – Fall 2021

Member Survey Part One: Member Experience – NOW LIVE!
Tell us the types of services and support you value and your member experience priorities. The anonymous survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and closes on December 31, 2021.


Member Experience Virtual Townhall Series
Join one of our two virtual townhalls for an open dialogue with our Pension Services team on the future of UPP’s member services, supports and communications. Townhall attendees are invited to submit questions in advance via the event registration page or on MyUPP.ca.

Responsible Investing – Winter 2022

Member Survey Part Two: Responsible Investing – COMING SOON
We know that many of you want a sustainable and secure pension plan that makes a positive impact on the world. Let us know what sustainability and security mean to you in Part Two of our Member Survey, launching early in 2022.

Responsible Investing Discussion Series
Join our discussion series on the questions and issues that UPP should address on its responsible investment journey. Registration and other details will be available in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, you can subscribe for updates on upcoming Winter engagement activities and other UPP news and provide feedback anytime.

As a jointly sponsored pension plan, our members are one of our great strengths. Our purpose is to make a meaningful difference in your financial future – and your ideas, perspectives and feedback are essential in making that purpose a reality.

We hope you’ll join the conversation and help us continue forging a new path toward a bright future.
