CUPE Retirement Planning Workshop October 14-15


We are pleased to advise a two-day CUPE BC Workshop, Retirement Planning, has been organized for interested members.

The Workshop will be held 9:00am-4:00pm on each of Friday, Oct 14 and Saturday, Oct 15 at the Lansdowne Campus, in the Paul Building, Room 109 (P 109). Here is a description of the Workshop:


It’s never too early to start planning for your retirement. Learn about government and workplace pensions and leave with some good tools to help you prepare financially and psychologically.

NOTE: This workshop does not provide specific or personal financial advice.

Participants are requested to bring with them their “Member Benefits Statement” as the MPP presenter goes over them during their presentation on Friday, October 14 from 9:00-11:00am, and 1:00-3:00pm for CPP.

If the participant does not have their “Member Benefits Statement” please have them call the MPP at 1-800-668-6335 to set up an account.

If they already have an account and need to reprint their statement they can go to the MPP site where they select “My Account” and follow the directions.

Please bring a calculator.

For this two day Workshop, Friday will be Employer-paid leave and Saturday will be your own time, provided you do not work on Saturdays. If you do work on Saturdays, vacation leave or banked overtime leave or unpaid leave may be taken. Participants MUST attend both days.

If you are interested in attending the Workshop, please first seek approval from your supervisor. Then, let us know you are interested in attending (phone 250-370-3665, or email, or visit Young 224). Also, let us know if your spouse will be attending the Workshop with you.

Thank you!
