Membership Details

We are pleased to see a continued increase in Lohanas in Canada, which currently exceeds 650 family households!  We encourage all Lohanas to become annual members (lifetime optional) to support the community in being able to continue to provide great value and growth!

The annual membership dues are to be paid by all members despite their status of residential location, age, lifetime or annual, based on the family household address that the member resides in.  If the joint family members reside in different households (e.g. father/son living at different addresses), we request that you honour this system on a per separate household basis. The membership due deadline request has now passed, however, we are still accepting membership collections throughout the year, and at each of our events.  The change from collecting dues at Diwali in the past, to collect at the beginning of the year instead, allows the committee to budget in advance, plan for better events, and put communication systems in place so that the year can run more smoothly!  The committee are all volunteers running this organization, so your support in paying your annual dues on time is greatly appreciated to allow us to serve you better.

Lifetime Memberships

You have the option to also become Lifetime Members at $300, which typically provides the benefit of a discount off your annual membership dues.  Please note that for this 2019 year, following the AGM change in the constitution, it was unanimously voted that this discount is waived in order for us to meet budgets to make necessary operational changes and that the membership dues be set by the Executive Board.  We thank the lifetime members for supporting this and paying the full annual membership for this year.  We also welcome others to become Lifetime Members.

Can I Donate or Sponsor LCFT?

Absolutely!  We have several options to donate or sponsor, which can be found by clicking here.
Our annual sponsorship programs include select event tickets and discounted membership, as well as a donation tax receipt.  The funds are all deposited into a central budget, which the committee, led by our Treasurer, has allocated as operational spend to improve our communications, events and community support.  A full report on this will be available at the next AGM.


Finally, we would like to thank our annual sponsors and all our Annual Members for their continued support of the LCFT, participating and helping in events as volunteers, supporting your executive Committee in a positive and encouraging manner, and keeping the Lohana Spirit alive - Unity is Strength!
