Join the Family

Craigdarroch Castle's Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday June 10th, 2020 at 6PM Pacific time.

As this meeting is being held online so we can follow physical distancing requirements, members can access the Annual Report, Statement of Financial Position, Minutes from last year's meeting and Biographies for Nominees standing for election to the Board on this page.

Meeting links will be sent on June 9th to members who have provided email addresses, and copies of these documents will be available in our virtual meeting room on the day of the meeting. 


For those interested in becoming Members:

Thank you for your interest in joining The Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society.

As one of the few museums in Canada that receives little Federal or Provincial government funding, we are proud to be able to continue the restoration process solely based on the revenue from our admissions, gift shop sales, and through our donors and members. A gift to The Castle Society supports the ongoing restoration and curatorial process.

The Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society has a membership structure to encourage personal or business involvement. Please join us in helping to conserve the Castle and bring its stories to life and enjoy the privileges that membership offers.
