There are 51 Districts under the RTOERO umbrella, including two in British Columbia, one in the Prairies, the Altantic provinces & Quebec, with a total of over 70,000 members (2013 numbers) in the organization. Contact the Provincial Office for an RTO/ERO Membership application 1-800-361-9888 or visit www.rto-ero.org RTO/ERO offers many programs and services and also a very highly-rated Group Benefits Insurance Plan, for access to which you must be an RTO/ERO member. The plan is owned by RTO/ERO and is administered by Johnson Inc. and underwritten by Manulife Financial. Annual surpluses (since we are nonprofit) are used to improve the plan for members rather than go to shareholders of an insurance company.
