On the direction of the Government of Ontario, the AGO is temporarily closed.

To ensure AGO Members can continue to enjoy all the great experiences the Gallery has to offer we are prepared to offer an extension to the membership expiry date to reflect the length of time you’ll miss during this temporary closure. We will advise of any changes once the Gallery reopens.

Members can still renew their membership during the closure. We want to assure you that your Membership will not restart until on or after the day the Gallery reopens but you are eligible to enjoy AGO Member benefits immediately after you renew.

Thank you for your sustained unwavering support of the AGO especially during this unprecedented time.   We can't wait to welcome you back!

Visit our FAQ page or contact us at membership@ago.ca if you have any questions.
