According to our bylaws (1), we have three different types of membership:

  1. Regular Members: people under 30 years old (people under 18 do not have voting privileges when it comes to issues of legality)
  2. Adult Members: people over 30 years old
  3. Organizational Members: an organization, non-profit or business that conducts business in Yellowknife

In order to be a member, you have to sign up online! Adult members are asked to make a donation of $25 in exchange for their membership, however no person is turned away for lack of a donation.

Organizational Members are asked to make a donation of $250, however if the entity is a non-profit organization, we ask for a donation of $100. In order to be an organizational member, an entity must have LGBTQ+ inclusive policies in place, or be undergoing the process to develop LGBTQ+ inclusive policies.

Why be a member?

There’s tons of reasons to be a member of the Rainbow Coalition of Yellowknife:

  • super easy access to our rainbow centre
  • cheaper prices for any merch, events or activities that we host
  • getting to vote on how RCYK operates as an organization
  • first to hear about new stuff we’re doing
