Membership fee increase effective March 1, 2019

Dear members and affiliates,

In accordance with the association’s Membership Procedures (PDF, 139 KB), Editors Canada’s membership fees will increase by 2% on March 1, 2019. This cost-of-living increase keeps our membership in line with inflation. It also allows the association to continue funding member services and programs while working on the long-term sustainability of the association.

  • The fee for memberships will increase to $286 (from $281).
  • The fee for two-year memberships will increase to $544 (from $533.90).
  • The fee for emeritus members increases to $143 (from $140.50).

This letter provides you with three months’ written notice of the increase in accordance with the Membership Procedures.
