Fiduciary Duty” as an Ingredient of the Pension “Mélange 

Please join us for lunch on Thursday June 15th, 2017 at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel, 133 – 9 Ave. SW Calgary.

Pension law is a unique blend of legal ingredients including principles derived from trust law, contract law, and statute law.  Part of this recipe can include the notion of a fiduciary relationship and a corresponding “fiduciary duty.” 


In this session you will learn, through a series of case law illustrations:

  • When and why a fiduciary duty can arise
  • What are some practical applications of such a duty
  • What are the potential consequences of non-application of a fiduciary duty


Who should attend:  

  • Human resources, finance and other pension plan decision makers
  • Anyone that sits on a committee that has responsibility for their company’s pension
  • Industry professionals that work with pensions
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about pensions and pension law
