Join RAQ

Welcome to RAQ!

We are so happy you are here! (And congratulations on your retirement!)

The Retirees Association of Queen's (RAQ) strongly promotes the interests of retired faculty and staff - including vigorous advocacy for many retiree benefits.

RAQ offers an ever-growing array of programs, learning opportunities, and deals and discounts.  Just this year, for example, RAQ Travel was launched to offer small custom-designed tours, tailored to RAQ members and exceptionally well-priced.

RAQ connects you with fellow Queen's retirees, and puts you in touch with a variety of volunteer opportunities at Queen's if you want to make this type of on-going contribution.

RAQ is a member of CURAC/ARUCC (College and University Retiree Associations of Canada/Associations de retraités des universités et collèges du Canada).  RAQ Members have access to a wide variety of discounts through CURAC (on items such as home, health and travel insurance).

Membership to RAQ is free, but not automatic.  Please complete our membership application and send it to RAQ be email ( or Canada Post.  We will enrol you, and you will be sent your official Retiree Card that will allow you to access retiree benefits.
