Membership

The work of the Network is made possible by annual membership fees, donations from members both living and deceased, and the many hours of volunteer work put in by members and friends. See how you can help!

Current members, please click on this link Membership Renewal Form 2017 and renew your membership promptly – 2017 marks OWN’s 30th anniversary. Be proud of your membership.

Brochure to Introduce OWN

You can pick one up at the OWN office, or you can read and/or print it right here (pdf). It’s to be printed on two sides of standard letter-size paper, then folded in thirds.

Join Now

Read the mission and objectives of OWN before joining.  Then print out this New Membership Application Form, fill it in, and mail with your cheque to the OWN office.  If you can add a donation to your membership, please do so, and if you can bring another new member (friend, neighbour, relative) on board, that is a great way for us to grow.  If you have no printer, send in your information to 115 The Esplanade, Toronto, Ont. M5E 1Y7.

The membership form also includes instructions for becoming a preauthorized monthly contributor (PAC). To maintain our small office (run by volunteers) and support the costs of our advocacy work, the target is $26,000, which is higher than last year’s revenue of $21,000, reflecting rising costs and our plans to improve communications. We need, too, to be able to respond to the increase in opportunities in the community to speak up on our priorities: affordable housing, economic security, health services, and long term care. We must be involved in discussions and strategizing with partners and affiliates. So please become a member. We can’t do it without you.
