Our Association is deliberately designed to be inclusive, membership not only being open to those retiring from LU, along with their partners, but to anyone who worked at LU and would like to keep in touch with others. Our current membership is listed by name and former department. No other details are given on this public site, but members wishing to contact another member can be facilitated through our Membership Secretary, Bev Stefureak. Such enquiries can be directed to 

Membership is $10 annually, or $30 for three years, with equal status of membership for retirees, spouses and partners. Annual membership is from Sept 1st to Aug 31st.  You are encouraged to support the association by joining us, even if you live far from Northwestern Ontario.

Members with LU Pensions can authorize LU to automatically deduct $10 each August from their Pension cheque, saving the annual bother of submitting dues. To authorize this please use the LU Retirees Authorization Form, linked below. There is no additional cost for this service.
