The governance structure of the CSS Pension Plan is typical within the co-operative sector but is unique in the pension sector. 

The Plan is governed by a non-profit corporation incorporated on a membership basis – the Co-operative Superannuation Society – which serves as both Plan administrator and fund holder.

Under the Society's Bylaws, control rests with member co-operatives and credit unions and their current, past and retired employees. 

The business and affairs of the Society are supervised by a Board of six directors. Three directors are elected by and from the 18 delegates representing employers and three are elected by and from the 18 delegates representing employees.
