The Nova Scotia Federation of Union Retirees (NSFUR) was formed in 2005. The purpose of the organization is to actively work on behalf of retired workers and their families to make improvements on issues important to them.

We are involved in municipal, provincial and federal campaigns dealing with issues relevant to retirees. Currently we are working on campaigns seeking improvements to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP), Old Age Security (OAS) and the Pharmacare Program. We are also affiliated with the Congress of Union Retirees of Canada (CURC).

NSFUR is in the process of creating provincial area councils to provide retirees more opportunities to participate in campaigns in their regions.

The NSFUR provides a voice and a vehicle for retirees. Membership cost $12 per year.
