The Ottawa Branch
Welcome to the website of the Ottawa Branch of the FSNA, now operating as the National Association of Federal Retirees. As of the end of 2012 we have about 31,000 members. The Ottawa Branch serves the area of the City of Ottawa. We are a non-profit organization whose main mission is to advocate measures beneficial to retirees and future retirees of the Public Service of Canada, the Canadian Forces, the RCMP and federally appointed judges; to oppose measures inimical to them; and to participate in the development of social policies and programs for seniors.
Almost all of our work is carried out by volunteers: a 12-person Board of Directors; a Past President; and over 70 other volunteers who serve on the various committees and who handle information enquiries. It also has office staff – a Managing Director and an Office Manager.
The FSNA currently has 84 Branches of varying size. These Branches are grouped into 16 Regions. The Ottawa Branch is part of the Ottawa-St.Lawrence-Nunavut Region. The other branches in our region are:
