IMPORTANT: We are upgrading our online membership management system. To check your membership status or if you have any questions, please contact our Executive Director.
Our members make us who we are. Vélo Canada Bikes offers several annual membership options. Whether you are an enthusiastic individual or representing an organization that shares our vision, become a member today! The people and organizations who support us want a better country for themselves, their family, their employees and strangers they’ve never met. Simply put, become a member of Vélo Canada Bikes and you join a community of people with a vision. Your funding will help us work harder for what matters to you.
As an individual or household members, you get to help shape the country you want to live in. When you support us, you are helping is achieve a shared goal with power to change how we live for the better.
Our not-for-profit members care about building a bike-friendly country and it shows. Local and provincial cycling advocacy organizations get to be part of a strong voice at a national level. Non-profit organizations at work in sectors like health or the environment already know all about what more bikes can do to achieve their goals and becoming a member means helping us reach decision makers who need to hear it. Local governments get to send the message that their bike lanes are open for business and that they think federal support matters.
Our business members play a big role in demonstrating the power of the bicycle. Smart businesses of all kinds know that cycling is important to both clients and employees – not to mention the environment we live in that makes everything possible. Engineering, planning, and construction companies benefit directly because we want to see you busy planning and building bike lanes. We help bicycle manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers create the ideal business environment and connect with more customers.
Municipalities across Canada of all sizes recognize that cycling is a bright part of their future, equally important to keeping families together and growing a tax base as it is to attracting businesses who care about employee satisfaction and lifestyle or keeping road maintenance costs down.
Membership has other benefits too, like sheer pride, or discounts for employees on future fees for national conferences that we organize (such as the Bike Summit in Ottawa) or – for non-profits and businesses especially, the chance to be involved in special Vélo Canada Bikes-led programs and funding opportunities.
