THE ONTARIO CENTRAL CHAPTER (formerly called TORONTO AND AREA Chapter)
On Behalf the Ontario Central Executive
We Wish you and your loved ones a Wonderful 2014
The BPG Ontario Central Chapter is pleased to welcome you to our section of the BPG website. Each BPG Chapter has its own area allowing us the flexibility to serve the regional needs of our members. Ontario Central is the largest of the Chapters and as such probably has the most diverse membership roster. So hopefully you will find some unique items of interest on our Ontario Central website. If you have any suggestions to improve this site to better serve our members, please send your ideas by email to our Webmaster Phil Thomson or to our Chapter Chair Titus Ramkhalawansingh at email@example.com
Our BPG members know that we are an organization of retirees from the Bell Group of Companies founded in 1995 dedicated to protecting two of your most important assets:your Bell pension and your Bell benefits
BPG has become a well respected group within the community of pension stakeholders in Canada and this gives a common voice to Bell retirees.
Since we have no way to be in touch with current retirees as they leave the company other than the list provided to all retirees in the In Touch publication, we must rely on you our valued members to either approach these new retirees and invite them to join BPG, or we must depend on you our members to contact your BPG Area Representative or another member of your Chapter Committee so that we can extend a personal invitation to them to become one of us.
The Bell Pensioners Group is valuable to you as a Bell retiree for three main reasons: we advocate with the company, government and others on your behalf, we are current on matters relative to your pension and benefits and we have access to pension expertise within the BPG organization.
As you know links to all five of our BPG Chapters are right here on our website for your convenience as well as all of the back issues of our BPG Chapter newsletters by using the link published in our current newsletter that you receive regularly as a member. Our membership application form for all chapters can be located by going to the Membership tab above and clickingon the Application form.
As membership in the Bell Pensioners Group grows, we increase our ability to influence outcomes relative to our Bell Pension and Benefits. The more Bell retirees we represent, the more influence we hold in protecting these valuable assets to your life.
Are there new Bell retirees in your circle of friends or social groups? Do they know about BPG. It is one of the best kep secrets in the Bell community and they may not have heard about us. Please invite them to join or contact your Area Rep or a member of your Chapter Committee and we'll ensure they receive a warm welcome.
