Cost of Living Adjustments

A Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) is applied each January 1 at the rate of the increase in the Canada All-items Consumer Price Index (CPI) when the funded status of the CSSF, measured at April 1 of the previous year, is greater than 110%. This adjustment provides members with some protection against inflation.
