Brits in Toronto has been following the issues around freezing of the UK State Pension for ex-pats living abroad, especially in Canada.
We also featured a very popular guest article by Nigel Nelson, a member of the Toronto-based non-profit Canadian Alliance of British Pensioners (CABP).
Nigel contacted Brits in Toronto again to let us know about the CABP Annual General Meeting this Saturday, June 18, at the Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors, 1565 Old Lakeshore Road West, Oakville, Ontario, L6L 6N1.
The meeting starts at 2:00 p.m., but doors are open for registration at 1:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
Nigel writes, “If you’re not a member of the CABP, don’t worry, you’ll still be made to feel welcome and, if you think that this illness, the ‘frozen pensions syndrome’ needs curing, it would be an excellent time to sign-up and help bring this social injustice to an end.
“There will be plenty of opportunities for you to ask about the impacts of the new Single Tier State Pension that came into force in April 2016, which is a new fever that future pensioners might catch!”
So, if you feel strongly about this issue and want to have some say, go along to the AGM, meet Nigel and find out more information.
