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 (see below), one of the finest community history newsletters you‘ll see anywhere. (The NVMA’s Express, gets its name from one of the North Vancouver’s earliest papers which was published from 1905-1912.)

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.

The business community is deeply woven into our history and continues to contribute a vibrancy in defining what North Vancouver is today.

A business membership gives companies a direct link to our history and our future in supporting the work of the Museum and Archives.
