Informative Sessions at Unmissable CIA Events

Hundreds of actuaries will be in Montréal next week for the last CIA-organized seminars of 2014. The Pension Seminar on November 4 and the Investment Seminar the following day will bring together investment and pension experts for sessions packed with the latest ideas and insights.

Online registration is now closed, but those who were unable to sign up in time can still register at the venue, the Hilton Montreal Bonaventure Hotel in the city's vibrant downtown core.

The first of the two seminars will feature numerous sessions of interest to those working in the pension field, including:

The luncheon speaker will be political commentator and columnist Chantal Hébert, who will provide insight into public policy issues with an emphasis on the aging population. Her speech will also look at Ontario and Québec pension solutions, and how they can become part of a national solution.

The following day, leaders in the investment sector will gather for a day packed with diverse sessions taking in such subjects as:

The guest speakers will include board members and an academic all well versed in the most up-to-date opinions and strategies.

There are still many more CIA events to come in 2014, but work is also well in hand for next year's calendar, the centrepiece of which will be the 50th Anniversary Annual Meeting and Gala Celebration. Be sure to mark your calendar for June 17-18, when many former and current members of the profession commemorate 50 years of achievements by actuaries in Canada, and honour the efforts of those who have helped make actuarial science what it is today. Also present will be keynote speakers Jeff Rubin and David Suzuki, and this promises to be an unmissable event.
