Your Board of Trustees

As of July 1, 2020, the WISE Trust Board of Trustees has been responsible for administering the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board Employees’ Pension Plan (the Plan). There are eight trustees. Four are appointed by the WSIB and four are appointed by the OCEU.

As the administrator of the Plan, the WISE Trust Board of Trustees is responsible for the prudent administration and investment of the Plan and its assets, and has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the Plan’s members. The Trustees are well placed to fulfill this responsibility, as they collectively represent a breadth of experience, including expertise in pensions, law, finance and investments.

Finally, you should know that WISE Trust’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) reports directly to the Board of Trustees.
