We regret to inform you that the in-person 2022 ANÉA-ASNA Convention “Redefining Our Reality”, scheduled at the Toronto Westin Harbor Castle on January 14-16, has been canceled. In accordance with the new Ontario COVID-19 government regulations released as of January 3, 2022, we will be unable to host the in-person conference as planned. We ask for your understanding regarding this issue.

Currently, the ANÉA-ASNA team is proceeding with our alternative plan for an online convention in replacement of the in-person event, which will occur virtually at a later date. More detailed information will be released via email to all attendees in the coming days. Please stay tuned for updates from our team.

Letter From The President

Hello and welcome to the website of the Actuarial Students’ National Association (ASNA)!

Our association was established in 1989 as a student-run and led organization with the primary purpose of providing professional and peer support to all students in the Canadian actuarial community. Since then, we’ve experienced tremendous growth year after year, primarily through our annual, January convention bringing together actuarial students and corporate sponsors from across the country for three days of networking and opportunities to learn and grow.

Whilst having achieved great successes with the amazing support and aid from the Canadian Institute of Actuaries and all of our sponsors, we recognize there is a need for services to be offered outside of the convention. As such, we have launched new programmes such as the nationwide Peer Mentorship network, monthly educational webinars, as well as the new national job portal, Actuarial Jobs, provided by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries.

Our primary objective is to provide better and broader support for the students of our Member Universities, and the addition of new Universities from across Canada as well as expanding beyond our traditional convention through these new initiatives.

I hope you are able to participate in our next annual convention in January 2022, and I wish you all the best on your actuarial journey!
