About NMRA Canada

In 2003, the NMRA Board of Directors Inc. gave approval for the formation of NMRA Canada. NMRA Canada is an entity established for the benefit of members of the National Model Railroad Association, Inc. residing in Canada.

NMRA Canada Prime Objectives

  • is a non-profit educational association whose purpose is to promote and teach the art and craft of model railroading in Canada

  • to allow  Canadian members to pay annual dues in Canadian dollars
  • to provide easy access to prototype and modelling information to members

Canadian members will continue to have all the rights and privileges of full NMRA membership.
