Conference aims to build financial planning community
The goal of the upcoming Canadian Institute for Financial Planners' (CIFPs) annual meeting

director of the organization.

the third edition of the annual conference. He expects the conference to attract some 300
attendees who will have the opportunity to network and create ties with other financial
Also, Mr. Costello explains that financial planning is the main focus of the CIFPs'
conference as opposed to most other industry conferences that may only feature
one or two sessions on the subject. "If you want to go to a venue where you can
learn everything on financial planning, this is the place," he states.
The aim is to give participants the tools they need to succeed, Mr. Costello adds.
Every attendee will also receive a copy of the organizations annual publicalion,
Current Trends and Issues in Financial Planning. They will also receive what Mr.
Costello calls the "bible" for financial planners, a best practices guide.
