SCRG is focused on the protection of company benefits and pensions of Sears Canada retirees and their surviving beneficiaries.
Sears Canada has a long history of treating its employees and retirees with respect and dignity. However, given the changing environment of pensions and benefits in Canada, there is good reason to have an informed, committed and proactive association to speak on their behalf. SCRG speaks for its members with Sears Canada management and is a charter member of the Canadian Federation of Pensioners (CFP), which speaks for the concerns of Canadian retirees with the federal and provincial governments and with Canadian pension regulatory and supervisory authorities.
SCRG was created by joining two Sears Retiree Groups: SRG, the original retiree group that was formed in the 90's, and ASCR, the retiree group formed in 2008. Sears Canada retirees have been well represented by these groups since 1996. SCRG is a federally incorporated, not-for-profit organization.
Our Mission: SCRG is a volunteer organization dedicated to the protection of the company pensions and benefits of all Sears Canada retirees and their surviving beneficiaries.
Our Vision: To be recognized by all retirees, government agencies and corporations as Canada's foremost advocate for pensions and benefits.
