If your responsibilities include advising on or making decisions on pension issues, it is critical that you are able to navigate this often complex and liability-laden area effectively. The Osgoode Certificate in Pension Law, now in its 8th year, is taught by acknowledged pension experts who will equip you with what you need.
Pension law and regulation is complex, technical and, to the unwary, a minefield of potential liability. The list of ‘must know’ topics seems endless:
Whether you are a lawyer, pensions professional, CFO, HR Manager, consultant or executive sitting on a pension committee, you may be called upon to give advice or to make decisions concerning pension issues. It is critical that you have an up-to-date and thorough understanding of key issues, their implications, and the best strategies for addressing them. The Osgoode Certificate in Pension Law, now in its eighth year, was developed to provide a comprehensive grounding in all major areas of pension law and practice. Taught by acknowledged experts in the field, it will equip you with the practical knowledge and skills you need in your day-to-day work, along with valuable networking opportunities.

Kendell Wilde, Legal Counsel, Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Canada Corp.
“This entire program has been excellent! As a manager in accounting who primarily advises on plan administration, I will be able to use this information to better advise plan members”
