PPAC 3 - THE DOLLARS AND CENTS OF PENSIONS
FEBRUARY 5-9, 2018
The Centre for Employee Benefits responded to the rapidly expanding and evolving world of pension plan administration by developing the Pension Plan Administration Certificate (well known by the acronym PPAC). The aim - to equip today’s working pension professionals with in-depth background knowledge, exposure to advanced level pension and pension fund investment topics, and hands-on practical skills.
Whether you are an HR professional, plan administrator, or member of a pension committee, you require a sound working knowledge of registered pension plans, including the ability to interpret, and accurately complete, federal and provincial regulatory reporting documentation. You must have knowledge about emerging trends in pension design and investment, government legislation, actuarial valuations and pension accounting. PPAC provides this essential background.
The PPAC program is delivered in three, one week seminars that progressively build your pension expertise. Click on the menu links above for more information on each seminar.
Seminar content continually reflects industry changes and trends. The following describes subjects that may be addressed in each level.
Seminar One is designed to teach pension basics - terminology, design, funding, legislation, etc. Basic retirement and estate planning concepts are also studies to give participants a solid understanding of how pensions are integrated into the retirement planning process.
Seminar Two focuses on provincial and federal legislation, required reporting and the resultant effects on plan design. It also deals with plan administration and related issues.
Seminar Three examines key financial concepts, pension governance, actuarial valuations, pension fund liabilities, financial reporting issues and the various implications on cash flow.
