The Retirement and Savings Institute (RSI) is pleased to announce that, through a competitive process, it has been selected as academic partner of the Dynamic Microsimulation Initiative recently launched by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). As part of this initiative, a partnership has been set up between ESDC, the RSI and Statistics Canada to build a Canadian retirement simulation model that will use microdata from surveys and administrative sources. The RSI will thus receive nearly $1.4 million by 2023 to contribute to the partnership regarding the model’s design, development and programming. Ultimately, this will allow to model and project in a detailed and reliable way the effect of retirement policy changes in Canada. The project fits perfectly within the RSI’s development plan. A dedicated team led by Professor Pierre-Carl Michaud is already in place at the Institute.
