How to enroll and start saving

Joining CEIRP is easy – and investing in your future is worth a few minutes to get started. There are just a few things you need to do.

  1. Get started by contacting your Local/Guild’s member services – they’re there to help answer any questions you may have and connect you with your plan administrator!
    • Review your CEIRP enrolment package and choose your investing approach
    • After you’ve completed the enrolment process, Canada Life will send you an email to confirm your account and to register for online access
  2. Register on – this is how you will have access to your account and make any changes.
  3. Make sure you read emails from CEIRP to keep up-to-date on news, useful account information and other financial tips to help you reach your goals.


If you’re a member of more than one participating union local or guild…

You only need to enrol for CEIRP once, but you must designate a Home Division (for administrative purposes). This will make sure your payroll contributions from all sources get deposited into your account. Be sure to discuss designating a Home Division with your plan administrator.
