Administrative history

College and University Retiree Associations of Canada / Associations de retraités des universités et collèges du Canada (CURAC/ARUCC) is a not-for-profit federation of retiree organizations at colleges and universities across Canada.

The feasibility of organizing a national association of academic retirees’ associations in Canada was first explored at a meeting held during what were then called the “Learneds” at the University of Calgary in 1994. A task force was established which contacted the presidents of universities and colleges across Canada, asking them to distribute a questionnaire to any known retirees’ groups. The response was apparently encouraging. Although no formal organization was subsequently established, a small secretariat located at the University of Regina was set up to channel information of interest to Canadian retirees’ associations to the CAUT, which offered to publish such information in its Bulletin and which also established a web site for the new “virtual organization” CAERA (Canadian Association of Emeriti and Retired Academics).

A reorganization and revitalization of the national body was initiated at a conference held at the University of Toronto on 31 May 2002. The initial meeting of the steering committee was held 1 Jun. 2002, where preparations to establish an official body began. The Constitution and a motion to incorporate were passed at the Halifax Conference in 2003. CURAC was officially incorporated on 9 Feb. 2006
