There’s a new educational program that gives financial professionals the ability to better serve the rapidly growing boomers and seniors population.

Based upon 15,000 trained professionals who have redefined the way they serve mature clients, the Canadian Academy of Senior Advisors is bringing its educational course and designation, Certified Senior Advisor, to financial services professionals in Canada. The first class runs December 10-13, 2003 at Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver.

“The Canadian team of experts that will manage the development of the CSA designation in Canada is without peer” said Ed Pittock, international president of the Society of Certified Senior Advisors, in a news release.

Over 100 industry associations and corporations have supported and endorsed this program for their members and advisors who market to seniors.

Advisors will be trained to understand the special financial, social and health issues that affect seniors.
