With the news that a new session of the Legislature will begin on October 7th, Bill 43, the Civil Service Superannuation Amendment Act — from the previous session — will effectively “die on the table”. Bill 43 had its first reading on March 19, 2020 and second reading on May 27, 2020. The Committee stage was completed on June 16 and no amendments were made to the bill. We had expected the Second Session of the 42nd Legislature would resume on October 7, 2020 at 1:30 p.m., as was published on the The Legislative Assembly of Manitoba website for months; however, the government announced a new legislative session will begin instead. More information on the legislative process is available from the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba.

Bill 43 had included changes to the Civil Service Superannuation Act that were jointly recommended by the Liaison Committee and the Employer Advisory Committee.

The CSSB has provided information on Bill 43 on its website.
