University of Waterloo Retiree Association
The University of Waterloo Retirees Association (UWRA)is open to all Waterloo retirees, both faculty and staff, and helps them enjoy their years of retirement, remain in touch with their former colleagues, and more. The association consists of volunteer board members who represent retiree concerns on Pension and Benefits matters, Human Resources issues, and UWaterloo policy changes. A newsletter, the WATtimes, is published twice a year with articles and information of interest to the UWRA members.
