Financial Planning Week

FP Canada and the Institut québécois de planification financière (IQPF) launched Financial Planning Week in 2009. Part of Financial Literacy Month (November), this national event, which takes place annually, is an opportunity to raise awareness about the benefits of financial planning and celebrate the profession.

Financial Planning Week 2023 takes place November 19-25, 2023.

The FP Canada Financial Planning Conference

During Financial Planning Week, FP Canada hosts its Financial Planning Conference, providing members of the profession with the opportunity to network, learn, and share ideas. In 2022, over 2,000 professionals joined us for the conference.

The 2023 Financial Planning Conference takes place virtually from November 21-23.
