More than half a million retired union members speak with one voice through the Congress of Union Retirees of Canada. Founded in 1991 as an affiliate of the Canadian Labour Congress, CURC advocates and lobbies on issues relevant to retired union members and their spouses.

Membership in CURC is open to retiree organizations of CLC-affiliated unions and individual retirees and their spouses. Members can get involved through CURC area councils and provincial or territorial federations.

The seven-member Executive Committee is elected at the convention held every three years. Together with representatives from each provincial or territorial federation, they make up the Executive Council, which meets twice a year.
