Thank You For Joining Us For 
Financial Planning Week 2020!

Thank you for participating in the 12th annual Financial Planning Week. Our theme this year was Resolve, Resilience and RenewalWe hope you found the sessions insightful, relevant and that you took away practical strategies to support your practice. 

In what was a first, FP Canada™ hosted Financial Planning Week virtually this year given the pandemic and gathering restrictions in place across Canada. And the results were astounding! We had more than 1,700 participants log in for the sessions, from St. John’s, NL, to Whitehorse, Yukon all the way to Nanaimo, B.C. and a majority of them for the very first time.

This year at
Financial Planning Week 2020, you heard from:

• Noted change specialist Dr. Mark DeVolder, who spoke to you about how you can build resilience  

• Julie Littlechild, founder and CEO, Absolute Engagement, on how you can drive engagement with your clients

• Dr. Bonnie-Jeanne MacDonald, who gave us a sneak peak of her research on why most Canadians opt for CPP/QPP before age 65, when they can wait till 70.

• Damienne LeBrun-Reid, Executive Director, Standards & Certification and Head of the FP Canada Standards Council™ moderated the Ethics Session that explored financial abuse, how to spot it and your role in protecting clients in such situations

Here's What Attendees
Have To Say:

 “I have always and continue to be a fan of Patricia Lovett-Reid and now follow her on Instagram. I loved Mark DeVolder session and have ordered the Unsinkable from the library and intend to purchase his book as well. The information on CPP study was very beneficial and I am looking forward to when the study is published to share it with my clients.”

"I appreciated the time frame - I had attended another virtual conference that was 8 hours!"

“The Ethics Session is by far my favourite. It is very practical”

 “Great job. Thanks for the virtual format, SO much more accessible to larger membership!”
