How much does membership cost? How is the money used?
The membership fee is $25 per year per person. All membership revenues are used to finance the events organized by the Society and for the maintenance of the Fork Lake campground.

How does membership benefit me?
In many ways. First of all, you will receive the Society newsletter. As a member, you are eligible to apply for a permanent campsite at Fork Lake. In addition, only members are able to borrow Finnish material (books, CDs, DVDs, etc.) from the Society.

Where do the events take place?
Most of our events take place at the Dutch Canadian Centre, 13312 ? 142 Street, Edmonton.  During the summer months many activities take place at the Fork Lake campground.

What activities does the Society organize?
In addition to annual general meetings, the Society offers different activities for members of different ages. Please see the home page and the information page for more details. We also encourage members to come up with new ideas for activities.  You can contribute ideas by telephone or email to board members or at meetings. The more we know the more we can do!

To whom should I send my new address?
You can send your new contact information to our Membership Clerk. It is important that you keep your contact information up to date.
