Improve the lives of members and seniors

We are focused on what matters most — our growing national membership and offering them more value than ever.

RTOERO community

The retirement journey is different for all our members.

Our core mandate is to serve our members. We provide essential health, wellness and travel benefits so our members can explore their journeys with confidence. We connect our members as volunteers, leaders, and advocates. And our members share their wisdom, stories and ideas with each other through our publications—fostering our community of learning and support.

Virtual Connection

RTOERO members Chime-In

The RTOERO Foundation recognized its fourth annual Social Isolation Awareness Month in October 2021 with the launch of a new program called Chime In for RTOERO members. More than 180 members joined Chime In, a weekly chat offering open discussion and social connection. The pandemic made social isolation a reality for so many, and the RTOERO Foundation recognized an opportunity to support members directly.

“I found the discussions enlightening and interesting and ended with a huge smile on my face. I felt that I had a good visit with friends.”

RTOERO Foundation releases new strategic plan

The RTOERO Foundation is responding to the urgent need to support Canada’s aging population. We invest in programs, research and training to support healthy active aging for all Canadians. Our activities aim to improve seniors’ health care, end social isolation and combat ageism. In 2021, the foundation developed a new strategic plan focused on three broad goals: Be the trusted voice for older adults in Canada, improve the lives of RTOERO members and older Canadians and broaden our donor base.
