Ray Sitter
Brandon, Manitoba

In my previous life I have been a teacher and an administrator . My career spanned work in one room schools teaching all grades from 1-8, where I taught all subjects, to being an administrator at the largest and most diverse high school in Brandon.

I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with several degrees in arts, science and engineering. My education degrees, bachelor and masters were earned at the University of Manitoba.

Some of the activities that I participate in currently are delivering for “Meals on Wheels”, working in various capacities for the Brandon Economic Development Board, working for the “Brandon Community Builders” formerly Habitat for Humanity. My wife and I have been the president couple and the newsletter editor for our local square dance group. In the Spring and Fall , I supervise education student teachers in Brandon Schools. In the Summer, I have a small job that allows me to travel the southern parts of Saskatchewan. I also am a member of Seniors for Seniors in Brandon.

My interests has always been in resolving the pension issues, working with financial issues and retirees and providing clarity of pension issues to teachers and retirees. These have always been central to my involvement with RTAM. I am also a member and director of the Brandon local teacher retirees group ( WREA). I have been on the Political Action Committee ( now known as the Political Advocacy Committee), the Membership and Chapters Committee the Pension Committee and the Bylaws and Policy Committee.

My goals have not changed. I see it as being imperative that teachers about to retire and retirees are aware of and basically conversant with the terms of suggested changes to their pension and how to best to prepare themselves for life after retirement and how to oppose changes that will affect their life in the future. Retirement.

RTAM needs your help, support and understanding to achieve the best results for you.


Retirement is a time of transitions. Throughout your career you belonged to the Manitoba Teachers’ Society (MTS), but upon retirement you are no longer a member. The Retired Teachers’ Association of Manitoba (RTAM) exists to serve retired teachers. We invite you to join the growing number of RTAM members and enjoy the benefits of belonging.
