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.
To keep informed of daily activities on campus, check out the University of Waterloo daily bulletin.
