IWA Forest Industry
The IWA Forest Industry Pension Trust and Plan were established in
1973 by an agreement between the I.W.A. and forest industry
employers. The Plan pays pension benefits to vested retired members
of contributing companies based on number of years of service in our
Plan. There are currently about 400 companies participating and
submitting contributions on behalf of approximately 15,000 members.
The Plan is jointly funded by employers and members. The
administration of the Plan is overseen by a Board of Trustees
equally representing the United Steelworkers (formerly I.W.A.
Canada) and forest industry employers.
