Membership & Volunteering


The Historic Vehicle Society of Ontario (HVSO) has been in existence since 1954 and continues to operate as the Canadian Transportation Museum & Heritage Village. Our current Roster shows over 130 current members who support the history of transportation and early living in Canada South. In exchange for a minimum number of volunteer hours (which can be shared by spouses), members receive free admission to the museum, village, EMS Museum, and outdoor shows as well as a Gift Shop discount, receipt of the monthly newsletter, opportunity to run for the Board of Directors and a great Pot Luck dinner each December. Please click here to download the Membership Application Form.


The Canadian Transportation Museum & Heritage Village is a great place to meet new people and expand your social circle all while providing a great service to your community! Your help to preserve the past of Canada South for present and future generations will be greatly appreciated by the staff and visitors but it will also prove to be a very rewarding experience for you. Please note that volunteers do not need to be members of the HVSO.

We have many opportunities for volunteers of all ages from the education program to special events to working on vehicles in the garage and everything in between. If you have a few hours or a few days a month and are interested, please click here to download the form, then print, fill out, and return it to The Canadian Transportation Museum and Heritage Village. You will then be contacted by our Volunteer Coordinator and given a tour of the facilities to see what activities interest you and what your availability is. Opportunities are very flexible. Volunteers who work a four hour shift receive a free breakfast or lunch in our 50s Diner.

If you have any questions about becoming either a member or a volunteer, you may contact the office at 519-776-6909 or email Thank You!
