Welcome

The McGill University Retiree Association (MURA) was founded in June 2015 to serve the community of all McGill retirees. Members of the four major McGill employee groups (MAUT, MUNASA, MUNACA, SEU) have worked together for several years to bring into being this new organization. MURA has the full support of these employee groups, as well as Principal Suzanne Fortier and the University administration.

The Colleges and Universities Retiree Associations of Canada (CURAC), of which MURA is a member, lists 41 member organizations located in all ten provinces. At McGill the only such group up to recently had been the Retirees’ Section of the McGill Association of University Teachers (MAUT), which served retired academics. The MAUT Retirees’ Section is now affiliated with MURA..
