Chapter 25 has developed, and continues to develop, a group of businesses and organizations which offer exceptional values to our members. However, those wishing to take advantage of these offers must be in possession of the Chapter membership card; the card issued by OSSTF does not apply since a similar card is carried by non-retired members of OSSTF. The following is the list of the affiliated organizations. Since new affiliated businesses are added from time to time, members should check their newsletters and this site for any new additions.

Laurier Optical
ARM membership cards must be presented to the sales associate at time of purchase. 60% discount on regular priced frames; 60% discount on the regular price of prescription lenses
Laurier Optical regularly conducts various promotions. Sales Associates will advise members if the current promotion represents a better value than the discount. This benefit is available to dependents residing with the cardholding member.

It is quite possible that the Sales Associate may not be aware of the benefits extended to members of OSSTF D.25 ARM members. Should this be the case, request that the Associate call Charlotte Annett, Vice President, Operations of Laurier Optical, at 523-2222.

Members in the Ottawa-Carleton area should use the Laurier Optical stores in Barrhaven and Kanata since these stores are very familiar with the programme.

Preston Hardware
ARM membership cards must be presented to the cashier with your hardware purchase. 15% off the regular price. Items on sale (or "net") do not qualify

Myers Bells Corners Hyundai
Contact Mr. Gerry Cloutier, General Manager, for special ARM pricing. It cannot be emphasized too much. If you decide to visit Myers Bells Corners Hyundai to view or test drive a Hyundai, you must contact Gerry Cloutier (General Manager) to avail yourself of the special offer to ARM members. The other salespeople are not authorized to make the offer! If Mr. Cloutier is busy, make an appointment by telephone or wait until he is available. You must produce your Chapter 25 (Ottawa-Carleton/Renfrew/Upper Canada) membership card for Mr. Cloutier. Put another way, the opportunity is not open to members of OSSTF who are still active in the schools

House on McGill Bed and Breakfast
110 McGill St.
Toronto ON
416 351 1503

Rideau Inn Bed and Breakfast
177 Frank St. (off Elgin)
613 688 2753

Note for House on McGill and Rideau Inn:

ARM members are entitled to two different benefits. If the member is under the age of 65, the member receives a 15% discount off the rates. If the member is over 65, the member receives the seniors discount of 10% plus an additional 5%.

The agreement with the owner is firm. The members wishing to take advantage of these benefits must produce the Chapter 25 membership card which states the area to which the member belongs (Ottawa-Carleton or Upper Canada or Renfrew), the membership number and a valid expiry date. The ARM membership card issued by OSSTF is not valid. The purpose is to limit the benefits to retirees rather than those OSSTF members who are active in the schools.

For those familiar with Toronto, the House on McGill couldn’t be more convenient. It is located on McGill Street which is one block south of Carlton at the corner of Church St.
