What MUNPA Does
MUNPA advocates for its members through membership on the University Pensions and Benefits committees, and membership in the College and University Retiree Associations of Canada (CURAC). It maintains an ongoing relationship with administrative offices on campus, serving as your voice on issues of importance. Our administrative office is there to take member calls and emails, process correspondence and mail, and provide support to the MUNPA Board of Directors as needed. It is staffed on a part-time basis.
Please consider becoming an active MUNPA supporter - a great bargain at only $2 per month. This fee enables us to cover the costs of our talks, group activities, socials, and Annual General Meeting. It also covers the staffing costs in our administrative office and allows us to produce our newsletter, Your Voice, on a regular basis. This is not a compulsory fee for members, but without it we cannot maintain the full slate of no-cost MUNPA services currently available.
This web site is hosted through the support of the university administration. MUNPA thanks them for their generosity.
