Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says it is time to consider options for beefing up Canada’s primary pension plan — but it is not time to act yet.
The dual message comes as he prepares to welcome provincial and territorial colleagues to a government retreat outside of Ottawa on Monday.
Pension reform will again take centre stage in discussions.
Flaherty says while he supports in principle boosting the C-P-P, the economy remains too weak.
