Membership Rates (2024)

New Members

The CACBT membership year runs every calendar year from January to December. New members can join at any time; however, depending on the date, there will be implications with respect to which membership year is applicable:

  • If you join between January 1 to November 14: Your membership will classify for the current year you signed up for (e.g. If you join March 2024, your membership runs until the end of 2024 calendar year).
  • If you join between November 15 and December 31: You will become a member for the following calendar year (e.g. If you join November 15, 2023, you will be officially considered a 2024 member).

Renewal Members

If you are an existing member and wish to renew your membership, payment is due by March 1, 11:59 EST in order to avoid late fees ($25.00 plus tax).

Note: The CACBT sends email reminders to current members about membership renewal deadlines. If you are not receiving our emails and wish to do so, please contact us at info@cacbt.ca.

Certified Members

Certified members must be active members of CACBT-ACTCC; that is, their membership dues must be up-to-date.

Note: to maintain CACBT certification, individuals must pay their membership fees each year (due on March 1, 11:59 pm EST). Those who do not renew their membership and pay their annual membership fees (as well as any associated late fees) by June 1, 11:59 pm EST will lose their CACBT certification. Should they once again become a members and want to be certified, they will need to undergo the certification process again.
