How it works for employers

Employer Registration

Log into a secure employer portal and follow our simple instructions.

Employer Processing

Payroll processing - deducting, remitting and reconciling contributions - supports better retirement outcomes for your employees. Change member contributions once per year - limits your role while recognizing your employee needs. No CRA reporting is required.

Employee Support

Posting Common Wealth retirement plan information at your worksite is all that is needed. A well-designed self-service portal for members leads to minimal employer support.

By partnering with a union, association, or group of employers in your sector, you can help your employees get access to a high-quality retirement benefit
