Welcome to the Ottawa Valley Branch of the National Association of Federal Retirees. 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 invite you to take a minute to learn more about our branch website, and to learn more about our advocacy priorities. And please be sure to like Federal Retirees on Facebook.

You are viewing the first page of our new website.  It is now a subset of the national website for Federal Retirees instead of being a stand-alone website. This makes maintenance of the content easier, and also means that all of the information for members, both from your branch and from our national system is in one place. We hope you will find this change convenient.

You can get to this page using a convenient short form of our URL. Just enter "" in your web browser to get here quickly. To see other pages for the Ottawa Valley Branch, scroll down the index to the left, and select another page. We will be adding more content soon.

We do encourage members to establish a login capability in order to have access to member-only documents. Just click on "Log in" in the top right corner, then look for "create a member account" to establish your login and password.

Please note that we are transitioning to a new email system, and the branch email address has changed. We can now be reached at Our previous email address ( will be phased out following a transition period.

And finally, we will update our site regularly, so check back often for the latest news and coming events.
