Retirement Planning During a Pandemic


Tue Feb 23, 2021
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
60 mins

What has the COVID-19 pandemic taught us about retirement, and how can we better prepare for the uncertain future?

Join Mike Drak, co-author of The Globe & Mail bestseller Victory Lap Retirement, for a timely discussion on how to re-examine retirement goals in the wake of COVID-19.

The pandemic served as an eye-opening moment for better financial planning and caused many people to reflect on their situation more than ever before. The self-isolation moments gave many people, especially those approaching retirement age, a glimpse of what retirement might feel like - an abrupt end to work, loss of social connection, and making ends meet on a lower income.

Mike will discuss the lessons learned during this time, share tips from his latest book, Retirement Heaven or Hell: 9 Principles for Designing Your Ideal Post-Career Lifestyle and how it's not too late to plan for life differently.
