Your Career

More Canadians are looking for help with managing their money meaning greater opportunities for you to build a progressive and profitable career in the growing financial services sector.

A career in financial services could include assisting clients in obtaining loans or mortgages; advising clients on investments, retirement planning or risk management; or analyzing clients’ financial situations and needs, helping them develop plans to reach their goals. Your knowledge in financial planning and investing, and your passion for helping people achieve financial security, will make you a trusted resource among people seeking smart and sound advice about managing their money.

Your career in Canada’s active financial services sector can take many different paths including as a personal banking officer with a Canadian bank, an investment advisor or broker’s assistant with an investment brokerage, a financial advisor with an insurance firm, or a financial planner with a financial planning firm.
