Earlier this month, the Federal Court of Canada released its decision in the matter of the National Association of Federal Retirees and its named applicants who were challenging the decision by the Treasury Board of Canada to increase the health care premiums of retirees from 25% to 50% under the Public Service Health Care Plan.  In her decision, Madame Justice McDonald sided with the Government. The Association has until the end of September to decide whether to appeal this decision. Further information will be provided on our website, in our monthly e-newsletter, and in Sage magazine as the situation unfolds.
