Retirement bill introduced in legislature.

The McGuinty government has introduced legislation to abolish mandatory retirement in the province of Ontario.

The legislation would continue to allow mandatory retirement policies where it can be justified on "bona fide occupational requirement" grounds determined under the Human Rights Code.

People are living healthier longer, the province says in a release, and should allow their lifestyle, circumstances and priorities to determine when they retire. The province maintains existing rights to early retirement, pensions and benefit plans will be protected.
