The 2017 Annual Meeting, June 21–22 in Québec City, QC, features two keynote presentations on the future of the actuarial profession—one with an emphasis on the millennial generation and the other on Canada’s financial past and future—providing attendees with a broader perspective of the profession.

Dr. David Coletto

Dr. David Coletto, founding partner and CEO of Abacus Data—a fast-growing public opinion and marketing research consultancy—is a strategic adviser and research design expert to many of Canada’s foremost corporations.

Named a “Forty Under 40” by the Ottawa Business Journal and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Coletto is also leader of Abacus Data’s Canadian millennial research practice, developed to help organizations, such as the former Credit Union Central of Canada (now the Canadian Credit Union Association), connect and engage with Canadian millennials.

In June, he will share his perspective and data-based insights on who the millennial generation is, why they are different, and what it means for the actuarial profession in the future.

The Honourable Joe Oliver

The Honourable Joe Oliver, who served in various roles in the government and corporate sectors, including minister of natural resources, minister responsible for the GTA, and of course, minister of finance, where he presented a balanced budget for the world’s eleventh-largest economy, offers a unique view of Canada’s financial past and future.

Named “one of the 'government’s most strategic assets'” by Maclean’s, Oliver represented Canada at the G7, G20, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and World Bank meetings of finance ministers and governors of central banks. He also co-chaired the G20 committee responsible for generating country plans to increase global growth by $2 trillion.

He will share his experience in numerous roles as a prominent financial leader in his session titled A Proud Talk about a Modest Nation – Canada’s Economic and Financial Future.

The organizing committee has worked hard to offer sessions for all practice areas. Check out the detailed program and its 46 sessions.
