I think you need another lawyer. I interpret something different. It appears the omers pension can be divided with respect to common law relationships.

see the OMERS handbook.

17 year CL relationship and contributions to such a pension plan; thats a lot of coin on the line. Get yourself another lawyer and fast!

Default Supreme court ruling on OMERS pension?

...of some sort in the last year or two regarding Omers (police services in specific) common law and division? Anyone know anything about this. Where can I go to research said ruling?
Are there any actuaries out there that I could hire and consult with?
