TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 04, 2016) -  On Thursday, May 5, the Fraser Institute will release a new study calculating the rates of return Canadians can expect in retirement from the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).

Amid the ongoing debates about expanding the CPP, the study, Rates of Return for the Canada Pension Plan, compares the rates of returns for Canadians born after 1955 (retiring in 2021 or later) and Canadians born after 1971 (retiring in 2037 or later).

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on May 5 at 5:30 a.m. (EST).

Study co-author Jason Clemens will be available for media interviews from Toronto.
