Report #2 Chapter 9

Restoring the Honor of the RCMP: Addressing Problems in the Administration of the RCMPS Pension and Insurance Plans ‑ tabled December 10, 2007

Committee members heard testimony on the issue problems in the administration of the RCMPs pension and insurance plans. Witnesses included those involved in the administration of the plans, current and former government Ministers, senior RCMP management, audit and police investigators, and representatives of the RCMPS civilian oversight bodies.

The Committee made 31 recommendations to counter the contracting and accounting irregularities, improve the administration of the plans, improve whistle‑blower protections and enhance oversight, including that the Government of Canada amend the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act to provide the Royal Canadian Mounted Police External Review Committee with adjudication powers whose decisions are binding and final (recommendation 9).

The Government's response was supportive of a number of the recommendations and indicated that other recommendations, including recommendation 9, would be further reviewed.
