Membership Inquiries

Membership in the VRSC is limited to professional researchers although we welcome members with a junior level of experience. If you’d like to apply for membership please complete and submit the form below. We’ll review your application as quickly as possible and will get back to you with member login information and a welcome package.

A one year membership costs $85 CAD and includes access to the member’s side of our website which contains details on sources that the VRSC has negotiated preferred rates with that you can apply to any of the projects you work on by identifying yourself as a member of the Society. It also includes access to a database of sources—their contact information and details of their holdings as well as daily updates on industry news, job offers and so much more through our closed Facebook page. The VRSC puts on educational workshops in different regions of the country exclusively for our members and makes summaries of those sessions available online for those who can’t attend. The VRSC also has a medical and dental plan for its members through ACTRA and details on that will be sent to you in your welcome package.
