The impetus and funding for establishing an Association came from the Municipal Employees Pension Committee.

Without an Association there would not be an opportunity for retirees (union and exempt) to have input to the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees regarding their pension.

The MPRA advocates on behalf of the Municipal Pension Plan retirees regarding their pension, benefits, and other concerns.


History

In the fall of 2002 the Municipal Employees Pension Committee mandated the creation of a retirees’ association.

The reason for the creation of a retirees’ association was twofold:  The first reason was to provide a forum for retirees to have a voice for their concerns and a means to direct these concerns to the pension committee; and secondly to satisfy the joint trust  that there be a mechanism to nominate and appoint a retiree trustee and alternate trustee to the Board.

The Municipal Pension Retirees’ Association started with 6 Founding Members. By 2018 our membership had grown to just over 10,000 members and the number of Municipal Pension retirees has now grown to approximately 375,000 active, inactive and retired members and their employers. Our goal is to achieve a membership of 20,000 numbers that would fairly represent retirees.  

Our province is divided into 6 Regions with a total of 34 Districts that hold four meetings per year. Our Provincial office is located in West Kelowna and employs two part-time staff.  The Provincial Executive consists of 16 volunteer members including our President.  Volunteer members also fill the executive positions at the District level.
