Retirement Seminar Schedule

Retirement Seminars for 2023-2024 have been completed.  The schedule for 2024-2025 will be posted in early September 2024.


  1. Teachers do not register with the NSTU for the Retirement Seminars.  Employers are required to submit names by September 22, 2023 at the latest.  Members should contact their principal/supervisor on how and when they can submit their names to attend a Retirement Seminar this school year.
  2. Teachers must register through their employer (Regional Centre for Education, CSAP, or APSEA) and receive approval from their employer to attend a Retirement Seminar. The employer is responsible for advising teachers of their approval to attend a Retirement Seminar, which Retirement Seminar they have been approved to attend, and the appropriate absence code to use.


Retirement Seminar Handouts

The NSTU provides a number of retirement seminars each school year for members who are within 5 years of retirement.  The handouts related to the NSTU presentations are updated at least annually.
