One of the strengths of the Association is the various sports and recreational clubs, each provides outstanding programs, support and services to members.  These nineteen clubs operate under the direction of their own Volunteer Club Executive Committee. Collectively, these activities are supported by more than 4,500 members.


The clubs include:  Archery, Badminton, Canoe Camping, Chess, Curling, Duplicate Bridge, Euchre, Fencing, Fifty Plus, Gun, Judo, Photo, Racquetball, Squash, Stamp, and Ski/Snowboard.


As well, a variety of other recreation activities that are outside of the various Club programs are offered including: First-Aid & CPR training.

“It’s more than the activities of the club, it’s the smart and interesting people that I have met and the camaraderie of the group which keeps me coming back!”  


Come and experience the fraternity of friendships that 4,500 Association members have found belonging to one of the RA Clubs.  What other reasons do you need?
