Choral Canada does not offer the option to purchase a membership for choirs and singing groups that are not professional or national in scope. Choirs and singing groups can purchase memberships with their Provincial Choral Organization. This is an agreement that the Provincial Choral Organizations have with Choral Canada. When your choir/singing group is a member of a Provincial Choral Organization, it is automatically considered a non-voting “Affiliate Member” of Choral Canada. This means your choir/singing group is included in Choral Canada’s advocacy campaigns and your needs are communicated through the Provincial Choral Organizations in shaping our programs, services, and resources. Affiliate Membership does not provide any membership status or benefits to an individual associated with that choir/singing group (ie. conductor/leader, singer, administrator, etc.). Individuals must be Individual/Student members of Choral Canada to access membership status and benefits. Please contact Choral Canada or your Provincial Choral Organization for more information.
