As discussed and announced at the Annual General Meeting which took place in Kingston in April 2017, the annual membership fee will increase from $10.00 to $20.00 effective in 2018.  This is the 1st increase in fees since the inception of DIPAC.

Some background information (as presented at the AGM):

DIPAC is an incorporated not for profit association formed by volunteers on behalf of individuals eligible to receive current or deferred pension benefits as provided by Ontario Registered Pension Plan No 0242727, currently sponsored by INVISTA (Canada) Company.

While most individuals who are candidates for association with DIPAC had their retirement commence under the auspices of DuPont Canada Inc., over time an increasing number will attain the status of 'pensioner' as direct retirees of INVISTA (Canada) Company, under provisions of this same pension plan. If you are aware of such retirements, please inform such individuals of the existence of our association and provide them with information on how to contact us.

Many retirees of DuPont Canada Inc., or more recently of INVISTA (Canada) Company, on hearing of the DIPAC organization, might assume that when they became retirees they automatically became part of this group. Similarly many might also assume DIPAC is just another social or community volunteer organization. In fact neither is correct. As indicated, DIPAC is an incorporated volunteer organization composed of people (like yourself) who have formally created an association whose goal is to understand, protect and preserve one of your most important assets-- your pension and benefits entitlements. Being a part of the DIPAC association thus provides inherent value. While qualification for pension benefits, as provided by the pension plan applicable to the above individuals, represents eligibility for DIPAC member status, you are encouraged to Register with DIPAC and become an Active Member of the association.

DIPAC has no agenda beyond assuring pensioners are treated fairly and with dignity. Given the relationship of this goal to the success of INVISTA (Canada) Company, we wish them well, and hope that they thrive and prosper for many years to come.
