Who can become an XCRA member?
XCRA members include former employees of Xerox Canada who have retired or are currently on continuance.
Is every Xerox Canada retiree a member of XCRA?
No. Not every XCL retiree or their surviving spouse is a contributing member of the XCRA. Membership is optional. However, XCRA is both a social organization as well as one that champions retirees with Xerox Canada.
Why is XCRA asking for monetary contributions?
Xerox Canada used to generously fund social activities for eligible retirees. Due to market conditions, they stopped doing so in 2018. While XCRA is a volunteer directed association, like any service organization, it does require operating funds to function successfully. What if I do not wish to contribute?
If you are an eligible Xerox Canada retiree, you will still be granted access to the MEMBER ONLY pages under the BASIC membership. Upgrading to a fee based membership to support the XCRA is optional.
How do I upgrade to a fee based membership?
Ensure you are logged into the system. Go to the top right hand corner of the page and login. Your user ID is the email we have on file. Enter your password. You will then be taken to the Member Profile page. Go to MEMBERSHIP LEVEL and click on CHANGE.

This feature is only available if XCRA members have enabled this feature in their Profile/Privacy settings.
Go to MEMBERS ONLY and then DIRECTORY. You can scroll through the listings or search by first or last name or region. If that member does not have their email address listed, click on their avatar (photo) and use the SEND MESSAGE box at the top of the page. This will generate an email to that member who may wish to (or not) respond back to you directly.
