Mac Harb Liberal Ottawa Centre, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-475, an act to amend the Canada Pension Plan.

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of the bill is to amend the Canada pension plan to extend eligibility for survivor pensions to the dependant children and spouses or common law partners of deceased contributors. It deals with contributors who are disabled and would allow for those benefits, in the event the contributor is deceased, to go to the children.
