MRIA Connect


Announcing The MRIA Mobile App: 

MRIA Connect!

Download the app on your iOS, Android, or Blackberry device today!

We feel that this will be a valuable tool for the association moving forward that will allow our members easier access to events, information, communication, and member resources.

MRIA would like to thank all of our 2016 Partners for making this possible!

The app will serve as a multi-faceted tool for the association that will assist in the reach of our communications, facilitate membership renewals and joins, streamline event registration for any of our events, as well as being an all-in-one event solution for our conferences throughout the year. All of this is made possible by fully integrating our backend database, iMIS, with the app. A full list of features is below:

  • Log in to the app using the same username and password that you use at www.mriaportal.ca
  • Edit your MRIA profile using the app to keep your contact information up to date
  • Receive MRIA news and announcements from the National office (chapter emails not included)
  • Receive alerts about important MRIA announcements
  • Come renewal time, individual members will be able to renew their MRIA membership through their ‘Profile’ on the app. New members with accounts on www.mriaportal.ca will be able to join and become members through the app in a similar fashion.
  • Stay connected with the MRIA through our social media networks
  • Easy access to view our member directory (only viewable to members upon login)
