About Français

CARP (formerly known as the Canadian Association of Retired Persons) is a national, non-partisan, non-profit organization that advocates for financial security and improved health care for Canadians as we age. With over 300,000 members and nearly 50 chapters across Canada, CARP plays an active role in the creation of policy and legislation that impacts older Canadians.

CARP operates under a unique business model. Through our affiliation with Zoomer Media, CARP has access to multiple media platforms. Advertisers interested in reaching CARP’s audience provide a full slate of benefits to members, often covering the cost of membership.

CARP works closely with all levels of government and collaborates with other organizations to advocate on health and financial issues. CARP uses the media and enlists members’ voices to increase its clout as an effective advocate.

Chapters

Many CARP members are active participants in their local chapters. Our chapters are active advocates who work for local change while supporting national efforts too. Many CARP chapters also sponsor events of interest to those who are 35+ in their communities. See below for a list of current chapters.

You can join CARP and your local chapter at the same time by selecting your local chapter below and clicking the 'Join Now' button.
