Retirement - Employment

The rules and laws around retirement in Canada have changed. Before 2009, the age of mandatory retirement was 65…Meaning that any employer could terminate an employee once they reach the age of 65, based solely on their age, and not their work performance, essentially forcing their retirement. However, the laws have changed, and there is no longer an age associated with when businesses can terminate their workers. People are continuing to live longer, with more active lifestyles, and based on their own circumstances and priorities, many people are choosing to work beyond 65. The disappearance of pension plans, as well as continued rising costs of housing and living, are also keeping employees in the workforce longer. There are some exceptions to mandatory retirement, in specific cases where physical ability is a must, such as firefighters and police work. Do you have questions about planning for your retirement? Are you wondering if your profession or industry is one that qualifies for mandatory retirement, and you would like information regarding age the cap? Thinking about retirement can bring with it many questions. We have the resources you need and can help with your planning to make your transition into retirement a positive one.

Finding Work That Keeps You Happy and Healthy ... And Pays the Bills

Presenting the nitty-gritty details of available job opportunities, wages to expect, typical hours, and the qualifications and savvy needed to get hired, the book is loaded with practical advice on how to prepare both professionally and financially to start out on a new adventure.
