Retirement Savings Course

Retirement planning is one of the most important cornerstones of Canadians' financial health. To further our mandate to strive for an effective and sustainable Canadian retirement income system, ACPM is committed to fostering greater financial literacy, and in particular, helping Canadians to increase their knowledge of retirement savings. 

We invite you to participate in a free, online course where you can learn the basics of retirement planning and how to support your financial health and wellbeing, at any age.

Course highlights:

  • Self-paced learning on basic retirement savings concepts in simple language
  • Six bite-sized modules - each taking about 20-30 minutes to completed
  • Suitable for any age (in particular, those in the workforce starting to think about retirement savings)
  • No prior knowledge or qualifications are required

The course will provide you an overview of the building blocks of retirement savings and insight into the role that government pensions and workplace pension plans may have for your future or that of those you care about.

ACPM Financial Literacy Program Framework

COMING IN 2023: ACPM will offer a Financial Literacy Program Framework as a roadmap for employers, plan sponsors and administrators to create bespoke financial literacy programs for the unique needs of their plan members. We know that retirement income plan sponsors and administrators want to support financial literacy for their plan members. However, there are challenges to providing timely and suitable information. 

The Financial Literacy Program Framework will incorporate best practices, tips and resources to help ACPM members build financial literacy programs.

Stay tuned for news on our launch date in 2023!
