Support the Museum!

Become a part of the society that runs the Port Moody Station Museum with a 2016 Port Moody Heritage Society Membership. The Port Moody Heritage Society welcomes new members to become a part of it.

In 2015, the Port Moody Heritage Society hosted 30 events for the community! We had many items donated to our artifact and image collection,  many school groups were able to enjoy our educational programs and we made a lot of new friends!  A big thing for us in 2015 was the opening of our  McKnight Centennial Trench exhibit which has created new programs and events.  Join the Society in 2016 for another great year!

Your membership helps support the operation of the museum .  You get to a newsletter to let you know what’s happening around the museum (4 times a year). You will get to vote for who you want on the Board and Executive at the Annual General Meeting which happens in Spring .  

Membership numbers influence grant money coming into the museum as well and provide a large part of our budget for maintaining and displaying the collection.

Membership price:

Individual $10.00

Family $15

Corporate $75

Life time $500

The annual general meeting is extremely important in solidifying our plans for the future and continuing with our goal of preserving and sharing the heritage of Port Moody.  The society is fuelled by the commitment of our members and volunteers and we are always looking for more people to help in our goals.  If you are interested, visit the membership page or email us at and come out June 18th to learn more about this amazing organization.

Heritage Society Members Receive Freedom of the City

This October, two distinguished Heritage Society members received the honour of Freedom of the City from the City of Port Moody.  Both Mary Anne Cooper and Ron Curties have spent many years volunteering their time to make Port Moody a better place.  Only 12 other individuals have received this honour since it was established in Port Moody in 1971.

Dr. Mary Anne Cooper’s dedication to heritage conservation cannot be understated. As a driving force behind establishing Ioco Ghost Town Days, she has worked tirelessly to protect the Ioco Town Site. She was an active member of the Heritage Commission for seven years, and has served on the Board of the Port Moody Heritage Society. “Mary Anne’s dedication to preserving our heritage is remarkable,” said Mayor Trasolini. “She has worked tirelessly to ensure Port Moody’s heritage is preserved.”

Mayor Trasolini continued, “I can’t imagine our city without Ron Curties’ many contributions. He is most deserving of Port Moody’s highest honour.” Ron has been on at least 26 civic committees, and has participated in several signature Port Moody festivals and events. Ioco Ghost Town Days, Golden Spike Days, the Terry Fox Run, the Port Moody Library Links to Literacy Annual Golf Tournament and the Port Moody Foundation have all benefited from Ron’s volunteer work.

“Mary Anne Cooper and Ron Curties are active long time Port Moody residents and volunteers who have donated thousands of hours to the betterment of the city,” said Councillor Gerry Nuttall in his nomination for the award. “These two very special people have dedicated decades to making Port Moody a better place and deserve to receive the Freedom of the City honour.”

We are thrilled to have such dedicated and accomplished members among us. Congratulations and thank you both for all you have done for Port Moody!
