Hydro-Québec's retirement planning program is open to employees who are 50 or older upon registration. The program tells participants and their spouses more about the company pension plan, the financial means they'll have when they retire and the steps they'll have to take.
From September 2016 to December 2018, more than 2,047 plan members participated in the program. Since 2019, the program has also covered the psychological and social aspects of retirement thanks to a collaboration between Caisse Desjardins Hydro and Cégep Marie-Victorin.
The 2-day training program is held only in French, in a dozen cities throughout Quebec, from Friday to Saturday and from Saturday to Sunday.
Caisse Desjardins Hydro is an approved retirement-planning training provider, so you can claim up to $300 in training costs.
