Why Join?Joining Banner

CARM promotes friendship, cooperation and services to the railway modeller through national conventions, local chapters, The Canadian (our publication), the website and more.

When you become a member of CARM you are automatically added as a member of the local chapter at no cost. If a chapter doesn't exist in your area you can help start one by contacting the Membership Director for assistance. If you would like to change which chapter you belong to contact the Membership Director and this will be done.

The Canadian is available to all members as an electronic download and each member has the option of receiving a printed version as well. A printed calendar is also available. An additional cost for the printed material is required to cover costs.

Conventions, Meets and Super Meets have become an important part of our organization and take place in different Canadian cities each year. Check the Events page for these events.

This website consists of two sections, the first is open to everyone and includes many pieces of information for everyone to view. The second section is only for our members and this includes information on member layouts, archives of large images dealing with Canadian prototype railroads and all of the past newsletters in electronic format for you to download. The website is forever changing to meet the needs of the membership. As the website goes through changes more and more of the content will be moved in to the members area. Remember that the most basic membership is FREE.
