Ottawa-Carleton Branch News

Welcome to the Ottawa-Carleton Branch of RWTO/OERO! We are a branch of over 100 members who enjoy the “caring and sharing” aspects of the organization, and having fun at the same time. We welcome all retired women teachers from anywhere and any level of education to come and join us.

If you have recently retired, relocated to the Ottawa area, or just heard about RWTO, and would like more information, or would like to join us, please contact our president, Kathy McLean, at

The Branch program consists of several luncheons at various venues during the year – a kick-off to the year in September, a Christmas celebration, an Annual General Meeting in May, and others. Throughout the year, additional activities are planned:

∙    speakers and presentations on topics of interest to retired women teachers

∙    visits to area attractions such as art galleries, museums, historical sites, community services, theatre       productions

∙    get-togethers at members’ homes or cottages with potlucks or other interesting goodies

Many members participate in our special interest groups, the book club and movie club.  Community outreach is another important aspect of the branch activities. Support and donations are offered to local charities, with fundraising activities as needed.
