Why Join the Friends?

Throughout the year the Friends of the Vancouver City Archives hosts a number of interesting events including panels discussions, slideshows, historical walking tours, community outreach events and book launches. As we are always trying to raise money to support the work of the City of Vancouver Archives, a nominal admission is charged to the general public but we also hold special free events for members of the Friends. These are usually specially themed slide show nights featuring specially selected images from the CVA archival photo collection.

There is a number of ways you can join the Friends

Individual ($20.00), Family ($30.00), and Corporate/Organization ($30.00). A tax receipt will be issued for donations of $25.00 and over.
