Memberships & Journal Subscriptions

Our annual memberships follow the calendar year and are valid from January 1st - December 31st.

Any person engaged or interested in the fields of mineralogy, crystallography, petrology, geochemistry and economic geology is invited to join the Mineralogical Association of Canada.
