Programs and Services for Retirees
As a retired employee, you still have access to certain services and programs at McGill. For example:
- You get to keep your ID card, which gives you continued access to McGill libraries and other facilities on campus.
- You benefit by paying the staff rate when signing up for a membership in the Athletics Complex and Fitness Centre.
- You have unlimited access to your email account (first [dot] last [at] mcgill [dot] ca) and to personal and employee menus in Minerva.
- You can explore topics of interest for personal enrichment and for life transitions, or gain practical skills to apply to daily life. Personal and Cultural Enrichment (PACE) workshops and lectures are held on and off campus, with facilitators drawn from an extensive pool of academic, artistic and professional talents.
- You can sign up for courses in the McGill Community Lifelong Learning program within the McGill School of Continuing Studies. This program is a community of mature learners emphasizing peer learning through active participation. Engage in round-table discussions with passionate volunteer moderators, where the only prerequisites are a willingness to participate and a curious mind.
- If you haven’t settled your pension account and if you are a member of the McGill University Pension Plan (MUPP), you can attend information sessions. You can also attend the annual meeting organized by the Pension Administration Committee.
