Alberta requires amendments and other documents to be filed online
On September 30, 2020, the Alberta Superintendent of Pensions (the Superintendent) published EPPA Update 20-06, which describes revisions to its online filing system.
Effective October 1, 2020, all audited financial statements, plan texts and amendments, and fund holder documents that are required to be filed under the Employment Pension Plans Act and Employment Pension Plans Regulation must be filed online through the Pensions Online Filing System website. Any associated forms, summaries and redlined versions that accompany the filing of such documents must be submitted online as well. These documents will no longer be accepted by email or regular mail.
The Superintendent has required annual information returns (AIRs), cost certificates and actuarial valuations to be filed online since October 1, 2014.
The Superintendent has also published an Online Filing User Manual to guide plan administrators through the online filing process.
