Welcome to the BC Retired Principals’ & Vice-Principals’ Association

The year 2021 marked the 25th anniversary of our association during which we’ve grown from 14 to over 760 members. Once you are a member, the annual fee is deducted from your July pension. The fee is currently $20.00 per year. Please note that you must apply to be a member as it is not automatic upon retirement.

The purposes of the BCRPVPA are:

  • To maintain an active affiliation with the B.C. Principals’ and Vice-Principals’ Association
  • To promote the interests and the welfare of its members
  • To communicate with members regarding issues of common interest and the activities of the Association
  • To encourage and foster liaison among Association members and Principals and Vice-Principals

Given that many of our members travel and live throughout the world we post all our communications on-line, however we do send paper copies of our newsletters to a few members without internet access.  We offer a variety of benefits including a choice of Extended Health/Travel plans, savings on the purchase of vehicles, insurance, hearing aides, glasses, technology, travel, household items and much more.

We invite you to join the BCRPVPA community – a community of diverse interests and shared experiences.



President’s Message, November 2021

Welcome To Our Newly Retired Principals & Vice-Principals!

We are happy to welcome 10 new members to our association, members who have dedicated their lives to promoting educational opportunities for our BC students. They have joined like-minded people who believe that retirement from education does not mean retirement from life’s expectations or from curiosity.  Finally, you may be able to explore what you have always wanted to do and connect more deeply with family and friends.  Even during these difficult pandemic times, do enjoy your new role possibly as a grand parent babysitter, as an ardent hiker, gardener, or writer, as a volunteer for a favourite association, zooming or as a dreamer of travel to exciting destinations!


We have a very close partnership with the BCPVPA, as they support us with our Association’s financials, the membership list, the Mentorship program, and the province-wide Chapter Council. We attend the Chapter Council three times a year.


The BCRPVPA & the BCRTA work together with affinity benefits, pension updates, Medoc & Prestige insurance coverage.  Please refer to newsletters or our website for more detailed information on Pensions & group or individual medical, dental, and home insurance as well as travel opportunities.


Now in its fifth year, the Mentorship Program was developed by the BCPVPA in conjunction with the BCRPVPA. The goal is to have retired Principals & current Principals, become mentors for newly appointed Principals & Vice-Principals throughout BC.  This supportive mentorship program has continued to receive positive feedback throughout its first five years and is continuing in earnest using online platforms and scheduled calls. This year, supporting new members to our profession is especially important.


Please refer to our website for further information about affinity, benefits, insurance, pensions, scholarships, & reports from committees, under the section ‘Meetings’.

The BC Retired Principals’ & Vice-Principals’ Executive wishes all BCRPVPA Members a year of good health, safety & rest.

Christine Johnson, BCRPVPA President 2021-2022
