Plan Governance

Governance includes the policies and processes used to oversee the business and affairs of the SFPP.  Effective governance helps to ensure that there is an effective structure and risk mitigation plan in place with clear accountabilities. It establishes the expectations of the Trustee and the authorities, and responsibilities of the Special Forces Pension Board (SFPB or the Board), and legislated service providers.

Personal Information Banks

Each Alberta public body is required to have a directory of personal information banks (PIBs) and make it available to the public. A personal information bank lists the type of personal information held by a public body.

The public can view a personal information bank to get information about:

  • The title or name of the information bank;
  • The location of the information bank;
  • What kind of personal information is contained in the information bank;
  • What categories of individuals the information pertains to;
  • Why the information was collected and how it is used or disclosed; and
  • The legal authority for the collection of the information.

A personal information bank does not provide direct access to an individual’s records.

Board Appeals

The Special Forces Pension Board has been delegated the authority to hear appeals regarding decisions from the Plan’s administrator, Alberta Pensions Services Corporation (APS) which affect individual plan members. First, the individual requesting the appeal must take certain steps with APS and within specified timeframes. More about that here.

In order to appeal to the Board, you will be required to submit a written statement with specific details about the issue at hand. Alternatively, you can fill out the Notice of Appeal form.
