Welcome to the Langara College Retirees (LCR) page.  LCR is a network to which all former faculty, support staff, and administrators who have retired from Langara College are automatically members. 


ABOUT

LCR was created to allow Langara retirees to keep in touch with each other through the pursuit of activities of common interest, and to facilitate retirees’ continued engagement with the College and its students. LCR is directed by a Steering Committee consisting primarily of retirees, with some representation and strong support from the College, and is governed by a Terms of Reference document.

RESOURCES

College and University Retirees Associations of Canada (CURAC)   www.curac.ca

LCR has recently joined CURAC, which, in addition with connecting us with other similar organizations of college and university retirees across Canada, will give our members access to a number of benefits in the fields of travel and insurance.  Also, CURAC has a partnership with Retired Teachers of Ontario (RTO) who provide an extended health insurance plan that some of our members have compared very favorably against the insurance available to us through College Pension Plan. 

Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of B.C. (COSCO) www.coscobc.org

LCR is an associate member of COSCO. In addition to advocating for senior services, COSCO provides LCR with free workshops on over 43 health, safety, legal and financial topics. COSCO members can also enjoy preferred rates for travel insurance through Johnson Insurance (just mention you are a COSCO member). 


UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

 

In March 2018, LCR hosted a workshop on Wills & Estates, presented by a volunteer from COSCO.  It was just one of over 40 free workshops available to COSCO associate member organizations.  For more information, visit the COSCO website and click on the Workshops link.
