The average age of first retirement is 57.8 years.  Our current average life expectancy in Canada is 82.8 years and this is forecast to increase.  This means retirement could be the longest phase of your life, nearly 30 years or more!  How do you navigate this important transition to the next3rd of your life successfully? What does it take to enjoy your life’s third act fully, purposefully and with zest?
