Solidarity in Membership

We’re excited to introduce a renewed membership program at the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre! We aim to bring together a community that supports WAHC’s values through this program, while also creating opportunities to engage with the organization and each other.all together now
By becoming a member, you join a community of supporters whose collective contributions sustain our organization. Show your solidarity with WAHC – every member plays a role in helping us to build something truly significant.


Find yourself at the Centre… of art, heritage, advocacy and community.

The program is designed to provide members with even greater access to WAHC’s resources. This includes member workshops, a member e-newsletter with contributions from the membership, and access to reduced rental rates. Members with the capacity to contribute at a higher level are empowered to further share the history and stories of labour through Pay-it-Forward memberships and the option to gift a tour of WAHC to a school, union local, or local group.

There are multiple contribution options within each tier to provide different entry points to membership. Please feel free to select the level of contribution that reflects your capacity to give.
