In their duty as administrator, they must ensure that the pension plan and pension fund are administered in accordance with the Pension Benefits Act (PBA) and regulations, and the terms of the pension plan text. While the Board of Trustees retains the overall responsibility for the administration of the plan, they may retain administration staff and professional advisors to handle the day to day operations.
