Note: A member must be an ACTIVE member to qualify for retired status. If the current status shows as ‘Eligible for Reactivation’ or ‘Eligible for Reinstatement’ then they are not eligible for retired status unless they satisfy the requirements to return their membership status to active.
Are you retired or preparing to retire? Retirees can maintain OACETT membership, certifications, and membership benefits like group insurance rates, all while paying reduced dues. Check below to see if you are eligible.
Retired members pay reduced membership dues of $98.40 + $12.7 9 HST = $111.19.
Please note, due to the reduction in allowed working hours, road construction designations cannot be held by retired members.
If you are 65 years old or more and working fewer than 100 hours in the engineering technology or applied science fields, you qualify for retired membership.
If you are older than 55 but not yet 65 years old, you may qualify for retired status if you have been a member of OACETT for 10 years or more and are working fewer than 100 hours in the engineering technology or applied science fields.
