Group Retirement Savings Plan

UFV has established a Group Retirement Savings Plan (Group RRSP) to assist you in meeting your retirement goals. Under the Group RRSP, individual member plans are established for each employee joining the plan.

At retirement, the value of your account may be used to provide retirement income.
