Qualifying for a pension

Back to learn

How many years do you have to work in Canada to receive a pension?

Rounding it up

  • You only need to have had one job in Canada and be age 60 or 65 to draw from CPP; the amount you receive, however, will depend a great deal on how long you work.

  • You can supplement your retirement income with other savings accounts and government assistance programs.

  • Diversifying your retirement portfolio with a number of different income sources can help ensure you are able to lead the life you want in retirement.
