Welcome to SWARTA

SWARTA supports an engaged lifestyle after retirement through member-centred services, advocacy, communication, wellness and leadership.

SWARTA (SouthWest Alberta Retired Teachers’ Association) welcomes all teachers, all newly retired teachers, all soon-to-be-retired teachers and all currently retired teachers to our website.

We have a membership of approximately 200 retired teachers in southwest Alberta. We will miss the personal interaction with teachers attending the SWATCA convention this year but look forward to next year when we hopefully will be able to chat face-to-face. To the teachers of southwest Alberta—if you are newly retired or plan to retire at the end of this school year, please provide contact information to Terry Whitehead, the President of our organization, at swartacontact@gmail.com.  Your first year of membership in SWARTA is free.

If you have any questions about SWARTA, please contact Terry.

Wishing all teachers in Alberta a safe school year. You are doing an amazing job under difficult circumstances.  Always remember the beauty of the sunrise and the sunset.
