Welcome to the National Association of Federal Retirees, (NAFR) Central Okanagan Branch #07.
We are a not-for-profit association dedicated to protecting and enhancing the rights and benefits of retired federal employees. Our Branch is operated by a group of volunteers who are members of the Association and we encourage all Canadian Federal Government retirees, who are not yet members of our association, to contact us at 250-712-6213 to learn more about, who we are and what we do. In addition, we support our local community through advocacy and volunteer efforts.
Our mission is to provide information and services to our members relating to their federal government health and pension benefits. If you know of a member in a care facility, care home, or a private home who would like a visit from one of our volunteer members, please let us know.
If you need information on these matters, phone us at 250-712-6213
Our Motto is: "Making a Difference".
Spring Luncheon was held on April 23rd.
