Board of Trustees

As a multi-employer defined benefit pension plan, SHEPP is jointly Trusteed and provides retirement security for the province of Saskatchewan's healthcare workers.

SHEPP's governing document, the Trust Agreement, assigns authority to two appointed bodies: The Board of Trustees and the Partner Committees.

An eight-member Board of Trustees, consisting of four trustees appointed by 3sHealth and four by SEIU-West, CUPE, SUN and HSAS are fiduciaries, responsible for administering the Plan and investing the assets held in trust.

SHEPP's Board has fiduciary responsibilities requiring that they must act in good faith and in the best interests of Plan members and beneficiaries. The Board makes decisions regarding the Plan based on a foundation of governance and well-advised, responsible investment practices. Their goal is to maintain both stable contributions and the long-term sustainability of the Plan, ensuring the Plan is funded both today and into the future.

Board Meetings

The Board meets regularly, approximately six times per year, and following each meeting, SHEPP publishes Board Notes. These summaries highlight the activities and decisions from Board meetings, providing transparency and accountability to SHEPP members and employers.

Code of Conduct

Recognising effective governance structure and its fiduciary responsibilities, the Board of Trustees has established a Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest Procedures for Trustees, which they review annually. Each Trustee must sign a declaration upon appointment to the Board of Trustees and annually confirm compliance with the Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest Procedures for Trustees for the duration of their term.
