FP Canada: 1.0 Financial Planning (#7774)
Alberta Insurance Council: 1.0 Life, 1.0 A&S (#55284)

With an aging demographic, seniors represent Canada’s fastest growing demographic – a demographic that has unique requirements and challenges. There is a growing concern about the vulnerabilities that exist with senior clients. And although not all seniors are vulnerable, many vulnerable people are seniors. In this 9-part series, we explore important topics that all advisors must be mindful of when working with vulnerable and senior clients. The course concludes with a final test. A passing grade of at least 60% is required.

This CE activity has been approved by FP Canada as meeting the minimum requirements for CE Approval as outlined within the FP Canada Continuing Education Guidelines.
