IGA Memberships and Fees

The IGA is your association and we are here to support you and the Interpretive Guiding community. Membership fees ensure the organization is able to continue to support this community and do the work required to ensure Interpretive Guides are represented in Canada and around the World. There are many other benefits that the IGA offers to its members, like professional development opportunities, community events, pro-deals, job listings, our newsletter and representation at conferences and outdoor leadership meetings around the World.

In order for you to retain your certification with the IGA, you are required to pay a yearly membership fee. We have worked hard over the years to keep these fees as low as possible while continuing to offer you many valuable benefits.
