FP CANADA INSTITUTEEDUCATION TO ELEVATE PRACTICE
The FP Canada Institute develops and delivers professional education to help financial planners remain relevant, effective and at the forefront of their financial planning careers.
The Institute’s programs support financial planners in understanding the many factors that influence the financial planning process and the decisions clients make, including ethical dilemmas, behavioural economics and consumer psychology. That knowledge is critical in today’s competitive environment, which has been profoundly altered by technology and automation, and by the changing expectations of both clients and industry.
In addition to their essential technical knowledge, financial planners need strong communication, critical thinking and relationship skills. The Institute’s Professional Education Programs and Continuous Professional Development courses instill these holistic professional skills to help financial planners meet the diverse and evolving needs of Canadians—from client engagement and discovery to presenting, implementing and monitoring the plan.
