The McGill University Retiree Association (MURA) was officially established at its first Annual General Meeting in June 2015 with a mandate from several McGill employee associations and unions to serve as a university-wide association that was open to all McGill retirees. During the following two years, MURA entered into partnership agreements on membership and funding with the four major McGill employee groups MAUT, MUNASA, MUNACA, SEU-Trades (Downtown).  In 2018, MURA signed a Statement of Principles with University that officially recognizes MURA as an integral part of the McGill community.

MURA also represents McGill retirees as a designated member of the College and University Retiree Associations of Canada (CURAC), which links over forty member organizations located in all ten provinces. CURAC speaks publicly on issues of concern for the over fifteen thousand individual college and university retirees across Canada. In addition, CURAC holds a major conference annually that is hosted by a member institution; a role that MURA will assume on McGill’s Bicentennial in 2021.  CURAC also offers benefits to individual members through its affinity programs with travel and insurance companies and encourages exchange about best practices among member associations.  For more information on CURAC and its benefits, please consult the website:
