Bill 208 (Teachers’ Pension Amendment Act) unanimously passed Second Reading and is moving to final stages and a third reading.

Thank you to the Honorable Cindy Lamoureux for her work presenting and supporting Bill 208 to the Province of Manitoba. In addition, thanks are also due to all of the political advocates, politicians and our previous RTAM Board of Directors and Executive for this amazing and momentous work and achievement! The unanimous passing of this Private Member’s Bill to provide RTAM with a seat on the TRAF Board, may be the most significant advancement of our political advocacy goals in the last 15-20 years.

RTAM Press Release March 2022

The invasion of Ukraine by Russian military forces is the atrocity of our times,” said President Bill Cann of the Retired Teachers Association of Manitoba (RTAM). Cann spoke on behalf of RTAM’s 10,000 members.
As an organization, RTAM deplores Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and its targeting of civilians. It is a threat to world peace as Russia has chosen war over diplomacy to resolve international differences.
RTAM will support the humanitarian relief efforts by encouraging its members to make individual financial and material donations to the Red Cross or the charity of our choice. RTAM volunteers will be needed to assist Ukrainian refugees who settle in Manitoba communities.

Aid for Ukrainian refugees will be a long-term commitment for the Manitoba community” added Cann. We are proud to lend our voice to those around the world who are calling for peace during this time.

On behalf of the over 10,000 members of the Retired Teachers' Association of Manitoba, I would like to congratulate the recipients of the 2021-2022 Excellence in Education Awards:
