What are the different types of pensions?

Rounding it up

  • There are three main types of pensions available to Canadians; some guarantee income during your retirement, others offer more control over the investments.

  • You can get pension plans from your employer, from the government, and/or on your own.

  • A mix of different pension and retirement accounts, combined with a comprehensive budget, is the best way to ensure you meet your goals.
