The Saskatchewan Teachers
Disability Benefits Plan
following is a summary of the main provisions of The
Teachers Superannuation and Disability Benefits Act
and Regulations. The Saskatchewan Teachers Superannuation
Plan (STSP) became negotiable in 1974 as a mandatory item under
The Teachers' Collective Bargaining Act 1973. Any
amendments to The Teachers Superannuation and Disability
Benefits Act must first be agreed to and included
in a provincial collective bargaining agreement. Subsequently,
the Legislature amends The Teachers Superannuation
and Disability Benefits Act to reflect the negotiated
provisions of the Plan.
The Saskatchewan Teachers' Superannuation Commission (STSC) may
from time to time make policies for the purpose of implementing
the provisions of The Teachers Superannuation and Disability
Benefits Act according to their intent and meaning.
