The mandate of the CIFP Retirement Institute is the advancement of the retirement planning profession through the development of the body of knowledge in retirement planning. This is accomplished by providing educational programs that support the Registered Retirement Consultant® (“RRC®”)/Conseiller en Retraite® and Conseillère en Retraite® (“CR®”), certification marks and designations, subsequent continuing education courses and administering a Code of Conduct and Practice Standards.

The Retirement Institute also promotes the use of retirement services by Canadians through public awareness, research and literacy programs.
