Membership Benefits

There are a long list of benefits available to you when you become an NWTRPA member:

  • Have Your Say – The NWTRPA is the voice of recreation leaders in the NWT. Taking advantage of your rights as a voting member is one of the most effective ways that you can have your say on the direction that the Association will take moving forward. Members vote on a number of important decisions, including the election and re-election of board members and various other board issues. (Note: Youth/Student and Corporate members do not have voting rights.)
  • Discounts – As a member, you’ll receive discounts on many of our courses and events. It pays to be a member!
  • Lobbying and Advocacy Power – Sometimes it can be difficult to feel heard by decision makers. Become a member and gain the power of the collective voices of recreation leaders in the NWT.
  • Access to Funding/Events/Programs – As a member, you’ll be the first to know about NWTRPA programs, events, and funding, and in some situations even have priority when applying (for example, when a course is waitlisted).
  • Members Portal – Access to the NWTRPA membership portal gives our members great perks! You can easily renew your membership, sign up for NWTRPA events and trainings, and connect with other recreation leaders in the territory.
  • E-news – As a subscribing member, we’ll keep you updated on the need-to-know information in the field of recreation. Each month, we collect recreation-related information regarding funding, events, and success stories and send it to you in the form of our E-News.

Note: This page is a general overview of the benefits of membership at all levels. Those signing up to be members at the Youth/Student, Government/Non-Government, and Corporate Levels may be eligible for additional benefits.
