The Ottawa Branch
Welcome to the website of the Ottawa Branch of the National Association of Federal Retirees (previously the FSNA). We have over 35,000 members. The Ottawa Branch serves the area of the City of Ottawa. We are a non-profit organization whose main mission is to advocate measures beneficial to retirees and future retirees of the Public Service of Canada, the Canadian Forces, the RCMP and federally appointed judges; to oppose measures inimical to them; and to participate in the development of social policies and programs for seniors.
General Members’ Meeting (no GMM this year)
For 2019, we have replaced our GMM with a series of Financial Literacy Workshops offering more seats than ever before on a greater variety of topics
