About Us

The Mid Island LEGO® Users Group (MILUG) was established in April 2016 and is based out of Nanaimo, BC. It is a community of adult LEGO® fans with a variety of building interests and skill levels throughout all communities in the mid island area of Vancouver Island, BC who share a love of LEGO®. Monthly meetings allow members to share ideas, discuss LEGO® products, plan our involvement in community events, and to share and build creations in a collaborative and supportive environment.

Becoming a Member

As an AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO®) group, membership is open to anyone 19 years of age and over who has a personal interest in LEGO® as a hobby. MILUG members have access to the member’s only forum, attend regular meetings and participate in community events and displays. Non-members can only access the public MILUG forum.

To become a member please:

  • Register on our website for access to the public forums.
  • Create a post in the Introductions section of the forums indicating your interest in becoming a member or email us at membership@milug.ca
  • Attend a MILUG meeting so we can all get to know each other in person.
  • Pay the annual membership fee of $12 (just $1 per month).

Monthly Meetings

Meetings are an opportunity to get together with other adults who love LEGO®. They provide a venue for discussing new ideas and techniques, upcoming sets, contests, and anything else related to LEGO®. They are also a great way for us to plan our involvement in community events. They are a place to show off your MOCs (my own creation) and even do some building – on your own, as a group, or as part of an internal competition or challenge!
