What is CARP?
CARP is a national, non-profit advocacy organization for people over 45. It’s the largest of its kind in Canada. We’re fortunate to have this group on our side! CARP fights for better health care, financial security and fairer treatment of Canadians as we age. CARP was launched in 1984 as the Canadian Association for Retired Persons, and has since grown to a membership of over 320,000.
Back when CARP was started, its founder, Lillian Morgenthau, was passionate about standing up for the rights of seniors. Today, CARP spreads awareness, educates its members, and lobbies successfully for government policy change. More than two dozen local CARP chapters across Canada, including 16 in Ontario, are continuously working for improvements in their regions, while also advocating for cross-country changes.
That’s not all there is to CARP. This organization also shares all kinds of discounts and benefits with its members, through partnerships with trusted brands such as with HomeEquity Bank, provider of the CHIP Reverse Mortgage. These benefits can make life more convenient, more cost-effective and more enjoyable for those of us over 45!
HomeEquity Bank proudly supports CARP’s mandate, because it believes in the same things that CARP does. It believes people of all ages deserve dignity, no matter how life transforms us. We deserve access to medications, health care and housing options that meet our needs without sacrificing our financial security.
Above all, HomeEquity Bank believes that Canadians over 45 are experienced, capable and strong – and deserve a choice in how and where they live their lives.
Is a CARP membership worth it?
If you’re over 45, you may be considering joining the vast membership of CARP – the Canadian Association of Retired Persons. You may be asking yourself, is it worth it?
More than 320,000 Canadians already know the answer to that question. They would give you a resounding yes! These CARP members are enjoying a wide range of benefits and discounts on more than 100 products and services across Canada. In fact, in many cases the money saved as a CARP member will more than pay for the annual cost of a membership!
Here are just a few examples of the rewards available to CARP members:
- Reduced home, auto and health insurance rates
- Discounts on health products, including medical cannabis
- Special prices for home health care services
- Daily savings at Rexall and Rexall Pharma Plus stores
- Hearing and vision care benefits
- Valuable travel savings
- Deals on Zoomer magazine subscriptions
- A cash rebate from HomeEquity Bank, a national provider of reverse mortgages that works exclusively with homeowners 55+
- Savings on phone plans, flowers, audiobooks and so many more products
CARP members also get free access to CARP Health 360, an online health management tool that helps you track your family’s medical information, set up reminders for appointments and prescription refills, and view and share your medical records, completely securely, no matter where you’re located.
As an added bonus, the “CARP Deal of the Week” is always a pleasant surprise! Every week, members have an opportunity to learn more about – and take advantage of – one of the special benefits.
CARP also sends out e-newsletters to its membership to spread the word about useful programs and provide tips for managing health, finances and lifestyle.
Whether or not you’re a CARP member, you still stand to benefit from the advocacy work that CARP is constantly undertaking to change government policy and improve the well-being of Canadians as we age.
