For many of us, pensions and retirement are often difficult ideas to grasp let alone plan. Also troubling, is the fact that retirement security may not be feasible for the generations to come. Stir in the mix government cutbacks, balanced budgets and public pensions and then you begin to see our retirement benefits slowly disappearing. And when you throw in buzz words like "OAS" and "CPP" and the "doom and gloom" of our pension system forecasted by political and financial pundits, the water can become murky very quickly.
To understand more about public pensions, why don't you consider attending one of our programs at North York Central Library? The Business Department has an upcoming free program in the Boomers and Beyond series entitled Are Pensions a Thing of the Past? York University Professor Emeritus, Robert J. Drummond will speak about public pensions such as OAS and CPP and the means to enhance productivity and Canada's economic well-being. Professor Drummond has written extensively on Canadian public policy and some of his research has included pensions and retirement.
If you can't make this program or you would like to read about planning for your retirement, here are a few books to help you get started.
