PAST EVENT – Retirement Planning Workshop

Dec 18, 2023

Retirement Planning Workshop – Spring 2024

On Thursday, 28 March 2024, District 36 Peterborough hosted a Retirement Planning Workshop (RPW) at the Holiday Inn in Peterborough. This RPW was open to any worker in education. President Lorraine had personally emailed the Principal of every school in Peterborough asking them to post information about this RPW in their staff room. It is absolutely vital that potential retirees know their options so they can make the right decision that will work the best for them and their families.

Anya Rampersad came from RTOERO’s Head Office to conduct the workshop which reviewed everything from how your retirement pension (either OTPP or OMERS) will look, how it works in conjunction with other potential government pensions (CPP and OAS) and the RTOERO ENTENTE Group Benefit Insurance Plan.

While some of the RPW’s can be done online, 44 people came in person to hear what Anya had to say. Lorraine welcomed all potential retirees, thanked them for coming, and explained how wonderful retirement can be. She introduced the executive members and said that anyone could speak to any one on the executive or Anya or email us if they still had questions at the end of the presentation.

Many of those potential retirees present really enjoyed the presentation. Several commented on the personal touch we gave them. We hope to see them at future RTO events. If you know of anyone who is retiring and needs further information, please have them contact Head Office or go on-line at
