The Retiree Advisory Committee (RAC) is comprised of 12 CIBC retirees who are geographically dispersed across Canada and are a connection between you and CIBC. The RAC’s mandate is to represent the views of CIBC retirees on issues that affect them and provide input on retiree communications and policies. Committee members also act as ambassadors and local champions for announced changes.
The group operates on a structured basis, with a revolving chairperson and a dedicated liaison from CIBC. Members are committed to a 4-year term, while the Chair and Vice-Chair commit to a 5-year term.
Contact details for committee members are available through the Facebook group. To access this information:

Retiree Volunteer Program
CIBC’s Retiree Volunteer Program allows retirees to volunteer in their community and earn reward dollars from CIBC in return ($12.50 per hour volunteering). Retirees can then donate these reward dollars to a charity of their choice, up to a maximum of $500 per calendar year. Reward dollars can be split between multiple charities if the retiree chooses.
Eligibility for The Retiree Volunteer Program is open to former CIBC employees who started to receive retirement income benefits from the CIBC Pension Plan immediately upon retirement, on a non-deferred basis. Retirees are required to record their volunteer time online using CIBC’s giving and volunteering platform by Benevity, a secure online tool that is available year-round. All retiree volunteer program applications must be done online using this system.
