Becoming an East and West Learning Connections Member

We cordially invite you to join the East And West Learning Connections (hereafter the Organization) as a member!

We are a federally registered non-profit organization based in Toronto.  We help people of different heritages break cultural barriers and get connected by bringing learning, communicating and volunteering opportunities to the public.  Please visit our home page to check out more details about us.

In addition, we provide special programs and extra benefits to our members.

  1. Members have full access to all club activities and announcements.  For popular programs that have limited space, members will have the priority to receive notices and register.  For some costly workshops, members will get discounted rates.
  2. Throughout the year, we will organize fun events from time to time for members only, such as online group chats, public speech practices, cultural field trips, nature walks, camping, and so on – you are more than welcome to contribute ideas to add to the list!
  3. We engage members with both conventional and innovative volunteering opportunities for you to apply your talents, participate in the society, and make a difference to the community.
  4. Once you become a member, your families, including parents, partner and children will be automatically entitled to all membership benefits.

All members must agree to follow these rules:

  1. Treat all other members with respect and friendliness, regardless of their cultural backgrounds or socio-economic  status.
  2. Follow the purpose of the Organization, and keep it as a non-political, non-religious, but purely cultural and not-for-profit organization.
  3. Read through and uphold the guidance policies of the Organization on Code of Conduct and Ethics, Conflict of Interest, Anti-Discrimination, and Privacy.  You can read all the policies here.
  4. Try best to be present at the Organization’s Annual General Meetings to review the reports of the board, and contribute to the shaping of the Organization’s groing path with your suggestions and votes.

 

We also hope you will be an active participant in our activities, and/or give a hand to the Organization whenever possible.

For the year 2022, membership is free. there are two ways you can become a member of the Organization on an annual basis:
