ECA Offers Membership to Canadians

The ECA announced today that they have begun offering membership to Canadian gamers. The organization has been providing advocacy and lobbying services for American gamers since 2006. It should be interesting to see what kind of impact the ECA will have here in Canada.

Here's the full release:

WILTON, Conn. (Business Wire) -- The Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA), the non-profit organization that represents video game enthusiasts, today announced they have begun offering membership opportunities to gamers and consumers who reside in Canada. Canadians who sign up to become ECA members can now take advantage of a host of discounts and benefits and will be immediately plugged into an extremely active social network of gamers that want to give their passion a voice.

"With a thriving gaming community already present and growing in Canada, we are proud to extend the opportunities and benefits that our U.S. ECA members have been enjoying over the years," said Hal Halpin, president of the ECA. "Canada is an important area of growth for us and we are excited to welcome Canadian gamers who are interested in community and any issues that affect gamers."

The ECA will soon be unveiling a host of unique benefits and programs that will be specifically targeted towards Canadian consumers. Canadian chapter organizations are already underway in local gaming communities and these newly-formed networks will continue to grow and offer a great way for videogame players to stay informed and connect with like-minded ECA members in their area.
