Discount Opportunities for BCRTA members


CPEAC, the Canadian Employee Acquisition Club, is a national discount program exclusive to Canadian public employees from all sectors, including their retirees. Unlike static discount programs CPEAC invites all members to participate in identifying products and services of interest.

To insure integrity and exclusivity CPEAC utilizes a Key Link system to communicate its saving opportunities to its members. The Key Link system consists of a new link every month that is emailed to the individual registered members, opening the door to monthly specials.

By individually emailing the Key Link the integrity of this exclusive program is protected. It also gives the members an opportunity to voice their opinions and/or comments to the management of CPEAC by return email. This gives individual registered members a voice, in this no cost and no obligation national discount program.
