The needs of retirees are served by a committee whose chair is ex-officio a member of the council of MAUT. Concerns addressed by the committee include health and other benefits, activities for retirees both within and outside the university, and privileges provided McGill to retired academics. Retirees are invited to contact members of the committee with questions and suggestions regarding their areas of responsibility.
The mission of the retirees' committee is to represent the interests of retirees to the university through MAUT; to create opportunities for retirees to engage in enjoyable social, recreational and educational activities and to foster a sense of community among those who spent all or part of their academic careers at McGill. We also hope to encourage retirees to continue their association with McGill, and to demonstrate to the university that that retired faculty members represent an important pool of talent that continues to serve in various ways.
Several times a year, MAUT with MURA-ARUM, the McGill University Retirees Association, organizes luncheon meetings of retired members as opportunities to see old friends, receive news of interest and hear a guest speaker. Social opportunities, such as lunches and dinners (upcoming: Lunch and Lecture at the Faculty Club (Billiard Room, 3rd floor 3450 McTavish Street) with lecture by Allan Greer on "Montreal, 1642: Indigenous contexts and French context) on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - click here for details), outings (for example, a tour of the Greek Exhibit at the Pointe-à-Callière Museum was arranged for April 10, 2015), bridge, and visits to Montreal attractions, are regularly arranged - see the Section's Social and Recreational Activities. Through our affiliation with the College and University Retirees Association of Canada (CURAC), we receive a number of benefits including discounts on home and auto insurance.
