The Sun Life Canadian Unretirement Index measures how we view retirement and how we feel about our plans to get there. Now in its seventh year, it has been a measure of how retirement – or unretirement in many cases – is changing across this country.

Unretirement [un-ree-tiyr-mint] – noun:
The growing trend away from early retirement – by choice or economic necessity – and towards continued work past the traditional retirement age of 65.
