RTOERO is known as a bilingual trusted voice on healthy, active living in the retirement journey for the broader education community.
Our insurance programs are designed by members for members. We’re the largest provider in Canada of voluntary non-profit group insurance for the education community.
We promote a wide range of world-class programs, social networks and assistance throughout retirement.
Annually, RTOERO donates $100,000 to local communities. We give award $35,000 each year in post-secondary scholarships.
Our mission is to improve the lives of our members and all seniors. We use our collective voice to advocate on issues that affect the lives of seniors.
Through our charitable foundation, we have endowed a research chair in geriatrics at University of Toronto. The foundation also awards annual grants.
Who can be a member of RTOERO?
We welcome all those from the broader education community – everyone from the early years, school boards, post-secondary sector, private schools – and beyond. If you’re not sure whether you could be a member, contact us.
Though we’re based in Ontario, you can be a member from anywhere in Canada. We have members across the country.
You don’t have to wait until you’re retired to join RTOERO – we encourage you to start thinking about your retirement journey five or 10 years before your retirement date, and we have many resources to offer.
Why become a member of RTOERO?
There are more than 100 benefits and perks as part of an RTOERO membership—including discounts with more than 3000 vendors through our Venngo MemberPerks program, our award-winning quarterly magazine Renaissance magazine and Liaison newsletter.
RTOERO’s member owned non-profit group health insurance for retirees is a main reason many join.
We have more than 81,000 members and more than 100,000 participants in our non-profit group insurance.
RTOERO offers you membership in a community focused on healthy, active lifestyle—with 51 districts across Canada.
70 per cent of members are active volunteers in RTOERO and their local communities. We offer volunteer opportunities on our website and through our districts.
When can you join RTOERO?
Enjoy free membership until retirement – or in the year you join if you’re already retired.
It’s never too early to start thinking about the retirement journey.
Though the majority of our members are retired–ish, many members are also actively employed or enjoying second careers.
We promote healthy active lifestyle for all ages, but especially for those approaching and during the awesome years.
