SCRG advocates for Sears Canada retirees, speaking to government agencies, court appointed representatives and lawyers. SCRG communicates timely pension and benefit information and encourages its national membership to be informed and involved.
Our Mission: SCRG is a federally incorporated, not-for-profit volunteer organization committed to the protection of the company pensions and benefits of all Sears Canada retirees and their surviving beneficiaries.
In June 2017, Sears Canada received creditor protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act. Since that time, SCRG has adopted a more assertive role, fighting to protect the pensions and benefits of all retirees and their surviving beneficiaries. Three SCRG Board members have been appointed by the Ontario Superior Court to represent all Sears Canada retirees.
Our Vision: To be recognized by all retirees, government agencies and corporations as Canada's most successful advocate for pensions and benefits protection.
SCRG was created by joining two Sears Canada retiree groups: SRG, the original retiree group that was formed in the 90's, and ASCR, the retiree group formed in 2008. Sears Canada retirees have been well represented by these groups since 1996. SCRG is a federally incorporated, not-for-profit organization.
