membership3The Friends of the North Vancouver Museum & Archives Society is a registered charity and membership organization which helps to develop and maintain awareness of our community history, while supporting and raising funds for the North Vancouver Museum & Archives, their programs, exhibits and other activities.

We invite you to join the Friends Society. All membership fees, donations and funds raised through sponsorship, book sales, and community functions are used to support the goals, activities and programs of the Museum & Archives.

This financial support helps NVMA to:

  • acquire items for the collections,
  • purchase necessary equipment,
  • hire summer students, and
  • provide support for publications that feature North Vancouver’s history, including the Express, one of the finest community history newsletters you‘ll see anywhere.

Members of the Friends Society also support Museum and Archives activities by volunteering their time and talents for programs and activities. If you would like to volunteer, please explore our current opportunities and complete the Volunteer Enquiry Form on our Volunteer page.
