At the Institute, recognizing the contributions of our volunteers is a year-round commitment. National Volunteer Week, however, is an opportunity to collectively applaud the achievements of members who have given back to the advancement of the profession and longevity of the Institute.
Actuaries are experts in financial risk management, a constantly changing field that must be well regulated to protect the Canadian public. We have a duty to share our knowledge with decision makers. By taking a frequent stand on relevant topics, we also make our voices heard and engage in essential discussions for society.
Held annually on March 8, International Women’s Day (IWD) is the chance to celebrate the excellence of women and girls worldwide.
This year the Institute is showing its support by participating in IWD’s #ChooseToChallenge while saluting women in the actuarial profession whose representation and accomplishments have paved the way for change.
