Poll of the month: Retirement plans — March 2015

At what age do our readers plan to retire? Here are the results of our CPA Magazine poll.

While Canada no longer has mandatory retirement, more than half of Canadian CPAs expect to retire before the age of 65, according to our latest reader poll. About a third (32%) plan to retire between the ages of 60 and 64, and 22% say they will retire at age 59 or younger. Interestingly, 60 to 64 was the top-ranked response for nearly every demographic group — including gender, age, sector and location. The only exceptions were Albertans, whose top answer was 65 to 69 at 26%, and those who are already age 65 or older, where the most popular choice was 75+ at 39%.
