Welcome to the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) Retirees' Association
The CSEC Retirees' Association (CSECRA) was formally launched on October 8, 1998 by a group of
retired CSEC employees. Other retired members of CSEC were identified and contacted to gauge interest in forming an
association. Following a largely positive response, the association was launched. Subsequent elections were
held to form an executive committee. By late 1999, a set of bylaws were drawn up by the executive and the first
quarterly newsletter was published and mailed to the membership.
As constituted, the CSECRA is a private non-profit organisation independent of the CSEC. The role
of the CSECRA is to enable current and future CSEC retirees to maintain contact with former colleagues. As part of
this process, the CSECRA executive maintains and distributes a Membership Directory and advises of and/or sponsors
social and recreational activities of interest to members. Members are also advised of issues such as changes to
pension and other benefits along with CSEC related events and developments.
For further information on CSECRA membership including eligibility, membership form and annual fee please
