National discount programs

All faculty represented by FAUW are also members of CAUT (the Canadian Association of University Teachers) and OCUFA (the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations). Both organizations offer discount programs.

  • CAUT affinity programs include discounts on car rentals and various insurance plans. Visit the CAUT website for instructions on how to claim these discounts.
  • OCUFA gets you access to the national Edvantage program. This is where you get your discounted Goodlife membership.

How to sign up for the Edvantage program

  1. Fill out the registration form on the OCUFA website.

  2. You'll receive an Edvantage number, but won't be enrolled in the program for about one week (OCUFA submits new enrolments on Fridays). At that point, your number will start working.
  3. You'll receive your Edvantage card in the mail in approximately two weeks.

Hertz car rental discount
