Welcome to Retirees Association

Welcome to the website of the University of Waterloo Retirees Association (UWRA). The UWRA represents the University of Waterloo retirees (both faculty and staff) and helps them enjoy their years of retirement.

The association consists of volunteer board members who represent retiree concerns on Pension and Benefits matters, Human Resources issues and UWaterloo policy changes. A complete description of the roles of the individual board members can be found at the UWRA board of directors home page.

There are many activities in the region that you can partake in. Some events of  the new tour schedule are finalized while others are in the planning stages and can be found under the "Socials and tours" header.

    What is art? Three friends. One white canvas. Many opinions.

    Winner of countless awards and touted as one of the most successful plays ever on Broadway and London’s West End, this cleverly crafted dramedy asks the pivotal question – what is art?

    When Serge, who fancies himself as an art collector, buys an expensive painting, his friends Marc and Yvan react strongly to the extravagant purchase. The tension mounts, and a fierce debate ensues.

    As the conversation moves from the theoretical to the personal, the three friends are forced to ask questions not only about the nature of art, but also about the nature of friendship.

    This inventive play about the value of art and the fickleness of friendship is a theatrical masterpiece. Don't miss it.

    Recommended for ages 13 and up. Contains mature themes and language. There is no official rating system for live theatre. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child's age and maturity level.

    1 hour and 30 minutes. Please note this production is performed without an intermission.
