Artillery Associations that are local community based or national in scope, may apply to become an Affiliated Association of the RCA Association with the approval of the Executive Committee. There are no dues required for an Association to become affiliated.
The purpose for Affiliation is primarily one of information sharing and communication; however Affiliated Associations are expected to encourage their members to become members of the RCAA. Dues for membership in the RCAA may be collected by the Affiliated Association and paid in bulk to the RCAA, but the membership and associated rights belong to the individual and not the Affiliated Association.
Representatives of Affiliated Associations attending the RCAA Annual General Meeting must hold membership in the RCAA.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to join the RCA Association as an Affiliated Association.

The Toronto Artillery Association
The aim of The Toronto Artillery Association, formerly The Toronto Gunners, is to provide connection between the serving artillery and the local community. The members provide financial and physical support for items not funded by the government to the 7th Toronto Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery which is the local reserve unit and connection through the Royal Canadian Artillery Association to the Canadian artillery.
We contain a subgroup, The Limber Gunners, who operate two 25-Pounders (one of the guns used during the second World War and the Korean War) which fires blank rounds for salutes. Please visit the Limber Gunners page for more info, including a video and slideshow.
As associates or members of the 7th Toronto Regiment, RCA we take part in unit events and social activities. The members provide support to the other members and families in times of need.
