2021 CPBI Regional Council Members

The Canadian Pension and Benefits Institute is only possible thanks to the time, contribution and dedication from its active volunteers across the country. Without its dedicated and engaged volunteers, CPBI would not exist! Thank you to all the Regional Council members for their time and efforts.
