About the Huronia Branch

Huronia has been in existence since 1990 according to documents found at the National Office and sent to the Huronia Branch President Albert Secor at the time.  This seems to also match the date that appears with our branch By-Laws (1990 Charter date).  

Huronia covers a large area that comprises of 6 Federal / Provincial ridings: Parry Sound – Muskoka, Barrie – Innisfil, Simcoe – Grey, Barrie – Springwater – Oro – Medonte, Simcoe North and York Simcoe.  Federal Retirees members are assigned to a branch based on their postal codes within the branch’s geographical areas.  For more details, see the tab “Branch Federal and Provincial Ridings” under the main page “Huronia Branch” on this website.

The branch is a not for profit organization and is an entity and agent of the National Association of Federal Retirees (“the Association”), established by the Charter issued by the board in 1990.  The branch is subject to the Association’s national by-laws.  As an agent of the Association, the Branch provides services to its members and carries out local programs consistent with the purpose, strategic direction and policies of the Association.  

The core services of the Branch are advocacy at the local level in support of national initiative to advocate measures to protect and promote the pensions, benefits and general welfare of members and potential members. Oppose measures detrimental to the interest of members and potential members, information sharing, membership recruitment and engagement, etc.  More information on core services is contained in the branch Bylaws (tab “Bylaws and Regulations” of the main page “Huronia Branch” on this website).
