Details: The Association, in partnership with the Canadian Coalition for Retirement Security, has organized an afternoon of discussion and debate with politicians of the major Canadian political parties. Candidates include Jason Cole (Conservative), Darren Fisher (Liberal), Robert Chisholm (NDP), and Brynn Nheiley (Green).
As Canadians are prepared to head to the polls, retirees and veterans want to hear from their local candidates. We know that demographics are shifting, that the retirement savings landscape is shifting and that health budgets are challenging. We hope that this meeting will shed light on candidates' and parties' positions on these issues.
