Who is OFUR?

The Ontario Federation of Union Retirees (OFUR) evolved from a chapter of the Canadian Congress of Retirees which was chartered by the CLC in the mid 1980’s.
OFUR is dedicated to the proposition that Ontario retirees, as free citizens, are entitled to secure and protect their mutual welfare and that of their families by all legitimate means.
Inherent in this proposition is the attainment of its economic, social and legislative objectives through the organization of Ontario retirees from free trade unions and it will, at all times, hold true to the high ideals and principals of social justice on which the Labour movement was founded.
A wide range of Union Retiree’s Organizations representing thousands of Retirees are affiliated to OFUROFUR

Scam Alert!

Scam Alert! Did you receive an unknown international call ? Be wary! It was probably not your distant Irish cousin! It could be the Wangiriphone scam. It generates short missed calls or one-ring calls to then charge victims who return the call with premium rates. Be careful, don’t call back!
