Join the Family

Craigdarroch Castle's Annual General Meeting takes place on Wednesday June 9th, 2021 at 6PM Pacific time.

This meeting will be held online so we can follow physical distancing requirements. 

AGM email invitations will be sent to members by Webcast Canada.

This is the same company we used last year and they will be handling the invitations, as well as technical support during the event.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the event and the annual report will be available on the the Webcast Canada meeting page as well as in the links below.

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.

Robert and Joan Dunsmuir had two sons, eight daughters and plenty of exploits. The Castle weaves a fascinating tale of this intriguing family – their achievements, their relationships and even their quirks.
