Retirement Lost: A multimedia series Add to ...

So you think you have a retirement plan? Think again. Eight million people in Canada's work force don't have a company pension plan or an RRSP. Those lucky enough to have a plan are under seige as a growing number of businesses retreat from long-standing promises they can no longer afford.

Our week-long special series -- called Retirement Lost -- launches this Saturday (Oct. 17) and examines the growing pension crisis in our country. Read about those who have seen their pension incomes and retirement dreams shattered, find out why companies are abandoning traditional pension plans, know what is on the horizon for pension reform in Canada, and learn what you can do to prepare yourself for retirement, including advice from successful savers and investors.
