The defined benefit (DB) pension model addresses the challenges of saving enough and receiving enough, says HOOPP President and CEO Jim Keohane. Member contributions are automatically made each payday and the DB payout is based on a percentage of workplace earnings.
"With a plan like HOOPP, after 30 years of membership a member can expect to receive about 60% of what they earned at work," Keohane says.

Keohane noted that real estate is "an important asset class" for the pension plan. HOOPP, he said, is a large real estate investor, with over $8 billion in assets and more than 180 properties in Canada and around the world. Making the buildings energy-efficient, he added, is of critical importance. "We are ensuring that the buildings we own are healthy buildings," he said.
MP Robert Sopuck praised HOOPP for its focus on environmental issues. "It is through efforts like yours that businesses are taking up those tools and technologies and Canada is becoming a leader in creating and implementing advanced energy solutions," he said.
As a long-term investor, HOOPP's real estate group has established a sustainability program designed around industry best practices to enhance property values and manage portfolio risks by investing in and developing healthy, resource efficient, and high-quality buildings. This is ideal for a pension plan serving 286,000 active and retired healthcare workers.
Keohane said real estate investing is an important way that HOOPP pays pensions - real estate produces regular monthly income, which aligns perfectly with HOOPP's need to provide pension benefits for its more than 286,000 active and retired members.
