ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issue concerning the collective agreement for mandatory retirement in Alberta. It mentions that collective agreements for mandatory retirement at age 65 have changed. However, it is either prohibited entirely or permitted based on a bona fide occupational requirement and a bona fide retirement or pension plan. The repeal of this provision has not also been successfully initiated by the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
