Canada, China sign social security agreement

OTTAWA — The Canadian government has signed a social security agreement with China that will allow workers temporarily posted in China by their Canadian employers to continue contributing to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) while abroad.

The agreement will also exempt the employees and their employers from having to contribute to the Chinese pension program for the same work covered under the CPP.
