Our governance

Safeguarding the capital entrusted to us

Built on a solid foundation

Operating at arm’s length from the Government of Canada, our investment decisions are informed by a rigorous governance model outlined in the Public Sector Pension Investment Board Act (PSPIB). We are committed to transparency, and regularly report our activities and performance to the ministers responsible for the Pension Plans.

“ Integrity is at the core of our governance model, which ensures constant alignment with our mandate. ”

Our management reports to an independent Board of Directors, which is reponsible for supervising the management of PSP's business affairs.
