This means that retirees who have lived and worked in Canada and Spain will be able to receive their pensions from both countries without losing any part of their benefits.
The pension agreement between Canada and Spain also ensures that those who have worked in both countries will have their periods of contributions recognized in both systems. This recognition will allow for a more accurate calculation of the total pension benefit that they can receive.
