The International Foundation's 48th Annual Canadian Employee Benefits Conference brings you solid, straightforward education you need to make the decisions that are in the best interests of plan members and beneficiaries. The Annual Conference is designed to deliver you updated legislative developments, the latest cost-saving ideas, creative approaches to new challenges and collaboration with your peers who are dealing with the same issues you face.â€‹
Each year, the curriculum is carefully developed by active trustees and administrators along with the industry’s leading authorities in investments, fund management, legal and consulting businesses and top government and regulatory officials.
