The membership year is from April 1st to March 31st.

If your Club is a member of OAR, you may join as an Affiliated Member at no cost but only AFTER you have been activated by your own Club on the RCA website for the current membership year.

If your Club is not a member of OAR, you must register as an Independent Member here.  Membership cost is $90.

Not ready to join as an Independent Member?  Try a one-time tour/long distance event at $35 per tour day on top of the tour fee.  Use this Form.


Club Membership

Ontario Clubs Only

$120 Annually *


All members of a Club affiliated with OAR are OAR affiliated tourers and can participate in OAR tours without needing to join as independent members of OAR.

One representative of each Club can vote at OAR Member meetings and make representations at OAR Board meetings.

OAR Affiliated Tourers

Ontario Residents Only

* FREE *

OAR affiliated tourers can participate in OAR tours without paying fees to join as independent members of OAR.

Available to Ontario rowers in good standing with an OAR affiliated Club and RCA (i.e., registered and activated on the RCA Web Registration System (WRS)).  Once activation on the WRS is confirmed, the member will also be registered and activated as an OAR ‘affiliated tourer’ and can start attending tours.

Independent Membership

* $90 Annually *


OAR independent members can participate in OAR tours and can vote at Member meetings.

Ontario residents not associated with an OAR-affiliated Club will be asked to register themselves on the RCA-WRS as an OAR independent member.  They must pay the OAR fee and once payment has been received by OAR, the member will be ‘activated’ as an independent member on the RCA-WRS by the OAR registrar.

Canadian residents (outside of Ontario) can become independent members by paying the OAR fee.

In the case of US Rowing1 and overseas members, they must pay the OAR fee, affirm that they carry travel/medical insurance, and sign an OAR Membership Waiver when joining as members.

Guest Fee

For Non-Members

* $35 per tour day (of scheduled rowing) *


Note:  This is a one-time opportunity for non-member rowers to participate in a tour/long-distance event.  This amount must be added to all tour registration forms.  The guest trial pass amounts collected must be remitted by the tour organizer to the Association treasurer.  Everyone must sign a waiver.  U. S.1 and overseas rowers must attest that they carry travel insurance including for medical expenses and accidents.
