Lynda Champoux says
I would appreciate a “planning for retirement” info-session for those of us who need information on pension benefits, Manulife options, etc. I have missed out on previous opportunities due to clinical practice schedules.
Could you hold an info-session on a Monday afternoon, or a Thursday or Friday next semester?
