    ,”Retirement is one of the most critical financial and personal decisions you can make. Leaving a career or a business that has defined your life and moving on to the next phase is intrinsically risky. Timing is an issue in such questions as when to access registered savings and when to apply for Canada or Quebec Pension Plan benefits. But retirement is also an opportunity to live well. Old Age Security, the Canada and Quebec Pension Plans, numerous corporate pension systems, Registered Retirement Savings Plans, Tax-Free Savings Accounts, and other forms of investments allow people to build future wealth. When Can I Retire? offers you a hand through the maze of alternatives, provides worksheets to estimate retirement budgets, discusses the tax consequences of particular choices, and even shows you how you can live with a Canadian pension in various foreign countries. When Can I Retire? is the planning guide for making the right choices at a decisive point in your life.”
