The CPPIB dates back to 1997 when an Act of Parliament created the organization to manage and invest the CPP Fund to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the Canada Pension Plan. The organization was formed to be a professional, independent organization with a singular objective: to generate investment returns that will help support CPP’s sustainability over many generations.

The governing legislation is the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board Act. This Act sets no geographic, economic development, social or specific investment requirements. It directs us to invest “…with a view to achieving a maximum rate of return, without undue risk of loss, having regard to the factors that may affect the funding of the Canada Pension Plan…”
