Planning a vacation or buying a new car? Looking for a fitness membership or going for a nice dinner out? ARTA can help you save on these and so much more!

Starting September 1, 2019, ARTA now offers two great discount programs for you to take advantage of. With ARTA members living across the country, with a wide age-range, equal gender split, and a variety of interests, two programs are being offered in order to best meet the diverse needs and interests of ARTA members.

As an active ARTA member, you are already activated with the Edvantage program, and will have received a paper Edvantage card in the mail, typically six weeks after you enrol as an ARTA member.

To access the Edvantage program and its current offers, visit and log in using your five-digit ARTA member number and last name.

Participating businesses in Edvantage include the Canada Golf Card, Dignity Memorial, Hakim Optical, Local Hospitality (car rental and hotel discounts), and Mark’s Work Warehouse.

Note: As of October 1, ARTA will not be mailing out Edvantage cards to ARTA members. The majority of Edvantage offers are available online and do not need the Edvantage card as proof – but for the offers that do require the card, future ARTA membership cards include the Edvantage details and can be presented as proof.

ARTA members are also eligible for discounted City of Edmonton recreation centre rates. Details on this program can be found below.
