Annual dues are payable upon receipt of renewal notice. All members are sent a renewal notice covering National dues, plus dues established by their Member Society plus applicable GST/HST. National dues are established by the Board of Directors and ratified by Members at the Annual General Meeting. Member Society dues are established by the Member Society concerned.
*Please note that CPRS membership is by annual subscription and is non-transferable. Membership dues (including any applicable initiation fee or administrative penalty) are non-refundable.
Applications for Member and Associate status must be accompanied by a cheque or credit card information for membership dues, the initiation fee and applicable GST/HST.
Membership dues are based on a National Society component and a local Society fee. National fees are $270 per annum plus GST/HST. A one time, new member initiation fee of $50 plus GST/HST applicable. Please check with the appropriate local Society Membership Chair to obtain information on their Society's fee.
Membership renewal may be done online by clicking the link under the Membership menu. Please note that in the event the membership renewal payment is late, but within the first six months of the expiry date, the funds will be applied to the current membership year and membership will be deemed to have not lapsed. However, if more than six months have passed since the renewal deadline, a $50 administrative penalty applies to the reinstatement, and a new renewal date will take effect as of the date of the payment.
The CPRS by-laws state that an accredited member (APR) must be in good standing with the Society in order to use the designation and therefore, we encourage our accredited members to take note of their respective membership renewal dates.
