CABE Webinar: Meeting the Challenges Facing Pension Incomes in Canada: An Introduction to Dynamic Pension Pools

Financial security in retirement is a growing concern for many Canadians. With retirement expected to last several decades for many—combined with unpredictable financial markets and changing personal circumstances—older Canadians face a tremendous challenge in turning accumulated savings into income that will last the rest of their lives. An emerging solution, called Dynamic Pension pools, could give Canadians access to affordable retirement income for life. Join the lead author in presenting her internationally award-winning report as she discusses the challenges and the legislative successes they have made to make Dynamic Pensions a reality in Canada.  Presented and discussed recently to the OECD,  the Dynamic Pension solution is the missing piece in our retirement income system as well as in ageing countries around the world.
