While Zoomers are pleased with the TFSA and RRIF changes in the recent federal budget, the Harper government will not get their vote unless the CPP is increased.

That’s one of the findings of a poll of more than 2,400 CARP members across Canada.

But the election victory in Alberta appears to make an increase in the Canada Pension Plan more likely.

CARP’s Susan Eng says,”Things look much more optimistic for real action on helping Canadians save for their future”.

She adds CARP will be calling on Alberta premier-elect Rachel Notley to support a CPP increase, as do Federal NDP and Liberal leaders Tom Mulcair and Justin Trudeau, so there can be movement on the issue as soon as the next first finance ministers meeting.

In addition, the poll found CARP members also want to see action on home care, especially when it comes to dementia and pharmacare.
