What’s New in Public Affairs

Policy makers and governments are making decisions and creating policy that affects the financial security of Canadians. The CIA wants to ensure the actuarial voice is heard on matters where your expertise adds great value.

Public Statements

Three public statements are currently in development with single topic task forces serving as drafting entities. These statements are on the topics of climate change, public pension plans, and risk classification and discrimination. Member feedback received on each topic included opposition/support for a public statement and suggestions for issues to be included in the statement. Members will have an opportunity to provide additional feedback when drafts of the public statements are released over the next few months.


The CIA regularly responds to consultations from governments and various associations, including some that are international. These are opportunities for the profession to express itself on a variety of topics where it has experience and knowledge. The following are some of the Institute’s most recent submissions:



Second Half of 2017

Don’t forget that reading submissions is a great source of continuing professional development (CPD) credits.


We would like to thank all of the CIA volunteers who are working so hard on these public affairs projects. Your time and expertise are greatly appreciated.
