A discussion on the health and financial challenges faced by older Canadians



Tuesday, July 28, 2020

1:00 p.m. ET



Based on the strong interest and feedback from the attendees at our first event on June 15th – Facing Canada’s “uncomfortable truth”: The future of long-term care in Canada – we are delighted to invite you to a follow-up discussion featuring Leanne Kaufman, President and CEO of RBC Royal Trust, and Michael Nicin, Executive Director of the National Institute on Ageing at Ryerson University (NIA).


RBC Wealth Management and RBC Royal Trust recently announced a strategic partnership with the NIA, a think-tank focused on researching and developing healthcare, financial security and social well-being policy solutions for Canada’s ageing population.


During this approximately 45-minute webcast, Leanne and Michael will discuss:

  • Various options for late-in-life living circumstances including the impact of rising health care costs.
  • How individuals and their families can best prepare for and sustain each of those options.
  • Ways Canadians can empower themselves to live the retirement lifestyle they choose.

The discussion will be followed by a live Q&A session.
