CP pensioners were an important part of the railway’s success. Today, we continue to play a leading role as advocates for the railway.
The National Council of Canadian Pacific Pensioners Associations (NCCPPA) seeks to protect the interests of all retired Canadian Pacific employees and their spouses, and to promote the general goodwill and fellowship among the local affiliated associations.
To this end, we work with Robert Cameron, our Pensioner Representative and formal liaison with the CP Pension Committee under the Pension Rules.
There are also many benefits in belonging to your local pensioner association, and we encourage you to join and get involved with the activities of these associations. Help out where you can, it is worth it. And if there is not an association in your area, consider starting one.
National Council of CP Pensioners Associations (NCCPPA)
The NCCPPA was originally chartered in 1984. NCCPPA Conventions are held every three years.
The purpose and objectives of the NCCPPA are:
- To protect the interest of all retired Canadian Pacific Railway Employees and their spouses in all matters concerning their Canadian Pacific Railway pension and other benefits.
- To be the National Council for the Associations of Canadian Pacific Pensioners.
Prior to our conventions, we seek input from ALL member associations as to what, if any, improvements or changes they would suggest for pension rules, pensions, or to any of the other benefits they currently receive.
In order for the NCCPPA to be effective it is important that as many pensioners as possible become members of their local pensioner associations. If there is no pensioner association in your area you may contact any member of the executive committee for further information.
