By the time you read this, the days will be longer and the temperature warmer—and I will wonder what I was thinking about when I penned this article. Right now, I long for less snow to shovel, for fewer bulky winter clothes and for warm fingers. I know this longing will pass as I either immerse myself in travel articles and do something about it, or just plan for summer.
Thankfully, travel articles in news & views entice me with fascinating destinations—so many places to go and so much to learn. The glossy brochures hold much promise, but it is the lived experience I appreciate and trust. Thank goodness for ARTA travel insurance and the work of the Health and Wellness Benefits Committee that ensures worry-free travel.read more.

In 2011, Canada and the United States (US) issued the Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness document. As part of delivering on their commitments in the Action Plan, Canada and the US are undertaking the Entry/Exit Initiative. The Entry/Exit Initiative allows officials to track how many days Canadians have spent in the US. Prior to the agreement, the country could only track entry dates, not exit dates.

Built by seniors for seniors, the ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan allows members to continue receiving robust coverage after retirement, including medical, dental, travel, life insurance, and home and auto options at industry-leading rates. Members also enjoy the freedom of selecting the coverage level that's right for them – from basic medical and dental coverage, to enhanced offerings that include unmatched travel options.
ARTA makes it easy for members to manage their coverage. With access to fast claims service and point of sale claims, ARTA works with health service providers across Canada to reduce members' time spent processing claims – often the covered amount will be deducted right at the cash register. And with leading technology for managing coverage and innovative wellness programs, ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan members have a wealth of tools available to enhance their health and wellness.
The Alberta Retired Teachers' Association represents retirees from many career paths and walks of life. We do this through advocacy for seniors, wellness solutions, a wide range of member services, and the ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan – the only plan of its kind for retirees in Canada. Celebrating our 50th anniversary, we're proud of the services and programs we're able to offer our members.
