Membership in the Salt Spring Island Historical Society gives you the opportunity to support the preservation of Salt Spring Island’s rich history.

Annual membership is $15 per year beginning in September. The membership year is September to May (excluding Dec).

At 2pm on the second Wednesday of each month we offer a presentation featuring a variety of historical topics. Many of the presenters are descendants of Salt Spring pioneers themselves keenly interested in preserving Salt Spring’s rich history. These presentations are supported by a sound system and audio visual display.
