Welcome to our website. Our highest priority is serving our members. In addition to our regular events, from time to time you'll find information here on Association advocacy events as well as national events. We also invite you to take a minute to learn more about our branch.
Due to COVID-19, all public events have been paused. When we resume them, it will be noted on this page. In order to keep up to date, we encourage you to come back often to check out our latest updates.
In closing, your board of directors is committed to looking for ways to improve service to you, our members. We encourage you to get involved through volunteering or bringing forward suggestions that will help us in our efforts. We look forward to hearing from you.

Branch Membership Appeal
As chairperson of the branch membership growth committee, I appeal to you to help attract new members to the National Association of Federal Retirees. We need your help!
As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, new memberships to the Federal Retirees have slowed down since March, 2020 both at the national and branch level.
At the Fredericton & District Branch, active membership numbers have dropped to 1870 at the end of 2020 from 1930 at the end of last year. COVID-19 has got most of us thinking about how to stay healthy and has put a stop to most meetings and social events.
Over the past few years, we volunteers in the branch and on the membership growth committee have made progress at getting the message out as to the helpful information that the Federal Retirees are providing to its members and the public concerning protection of pensions and health plans, advocating for seniors, along with all the other benefits of belonging to our Association, including our preferred partners.
I ask you to consider what friends and acquaintances are eligible for membership and would benefit by becoming a Federal Retirees member? Membership is open to employees and retired members of the Public Service, Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP. Membership fees remain low at $5.55 per month or $66.60 per year for couples and less than that for a single membership. If you need a handy one-page handout, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: (506) 451-2111.
What is in it for me, you might ask? Although the mega recruitment drive (MRD) finished on December 31, 2020, you can still help keep the membership fees at a reasonable level for future years by helping to increase the membership numbers. Don’t forget the “good feeling” of knowing that you have helped someone to become a member and better informed about senior issues. If each of us brought in one new member, we could keep the Federal Retirees growing and doing more for us and our senior community.
To learn more please refer to our website: www.federalretirees.ca/fredericton and look for more information on how to become a member under the heading – Joining Us.
