Membership Categories and Fees

The College offers six membership categories for individuals including: active; active-reduced; associate; student, retired and lifelong. If you’re interested in corporate membership, you can find more information here.

The membership calendar year is from January 1 to December 31. The renewal campaign begins in October for the following year’s membership.


Graduated Entry Fee:
Join now as an Active member and take advantage of our graduated entry fee. In addition, this new lower fee is also open to current active members who are in the first three years of College membership. Should you have any questions, please review our Graduated Entry Fee policy .

This is a three-year graduated entry fee program.  During this timeframe, if you choose to take advantage of a lesser fee category, your membership will be renewed at the full active fee at the expiry of the three-year period, regardless of the fees paid during this period.

College members who refer a new active member will be entered into a draw for a free 1-year membership. Please ask the referred individual to note your name in the “how did you learn about the College” field on their membership application form, so that we may include your name in the draw. The lucky winner will be selected in September from all qualified participants from the previous 12 months.
