RAQ and Queen's Agree on New Policy for Retiree Parking Permits

In October, 2009, representatives of the RAQ Council and the Queen's Administration agreed on a new policy and procedure under which retirees performing unpaid service to Queen's may continue to have parking permits at no cost. This new policy should end the months of uncertainty on this issue.  This new policy applies to all retirees serving Queen's, whether they have held "Gold Permits" or not.

RAQ thanks all those in the Queen's Administration who played a part in reaching this agreement.

The new policy is described in detail here.
