Member Benefits

As a MOCA member, you have unlimited access to thought-provoking art and ideas. Your membership also includes exclusive benefits, from Members’ Previews to reciprocal benefits.

Membership Extension Policy

We recognize that current members have been unable to visit MOCA during our temporary closure and you might have some questions about your membership. We would deeply appreciate for you to retain your original membership expiry date as a gesture of support to the museum during this time. However, if you feel strongly that you would like an extension on your current membership, please get in touch with our membership team who would be happy to work with you on an adjusted expiration date.

We would like to thank everyone who has been asking how they can support MOCA during this challenging time. Waiving the membership extension is one way or you can also consider making a donation. We rely on the generosity of our members and donors, and sincerely appreciate every contribution.

If you have any questions about your membership or how to make a donation, please contact the team at membership@moca.ca or (416) 530-5138.
