"There’s a lot that RTOERO offers."

Janet Davies, Point Prim, P.E.I., District 50 Atlantic

I moved from Toronto to P.E.I. after I retired seven years ago. It’s beautiful here. Last year, I turned 65. I did my research, and RTOERO had great reviews. People were very happy with the benefits. There’s a lot that RTOERO offers. I also find Renaissance magazine very informative. When we can travel again, I’d like to be part of that too.

I retired in 2019 as a professor of gender studies at the University of Victoria. RTOERO is made up of teachers like myself, so there’s a commonality. I really like the travel insurance, and found myself taking advantage of those benefits most of all. As a member-driven organization, in comparison to the more commercial insurance companies, RTOERO has my interests more at heart.

I was a professor for 40 years, at the University of Windsor, Western University and most recently at the University of Victoria. Someone who retired a year ahead of me said he found the RTOERO insurance features to be superior to anything else available to us. RTOERO has filled a void.

I was an assistant to the superintendent of schools at Peel District School Board. Before I retired in 2019, I was searching around, and picked up information on RTOERO at a conference for educators.

We’re all retired educators who’ve put our hearts and souls into the school community. I was in education 34 years – four in Winnipeg, then 30 in Cobourg at the same high school. Joining RTOERO in 2019 eliminated all the confusion and worry about health care and travel care. Retirement was seamless. For me, it was peace of mind.
