The Gulf Islands Retired Teachers Association is a branch of the BC Retired Teachers Association. Members must be paid up members of the BCRTA, and there is a $5 fee for local membership. We are located in Ganges on Salt Spring Island.
We meet for lunch 4/5 times a year and have a Breakfast for the newly retired in September and a Christmas get together for all members. The dates are set each year by the executive. At our meeting we discuss relevant issues which concern us such as education, health, welfare, pensions, social and heritage issues. The atmosphere is informal, convivial and often festive. We strive to provide support for each other and, as much as possible, our provincial and local educational system.
