George Brown College Retirees' Association

The George Brown Retirees' Association aims to reconnect colleagues by offering an engaging calendar of social and learning opportunities, and by creating a variety of initiatives that both support students and give back to the College that once was a focus of our livelihood. The Association supports students by raising funds for a scholarship.
