Membership Dues Schedule

Core Membership

Membership dues are assessed on a yearly basis. The formula shown below is comprised of a base fee (determined by your company employee headcount) plus a charge per employee. There is an additional flat fee of $200+GST per company per year if you wish to list other Canadian-based or Canadian-operating “child” companies owned by your organization. “Child” companies must also meet the normal requirements for Core Membership (revenue stream, COR/SECOR certification, etc.) in order to qualify for inclusion.

Membership terms and dues are assessed based on the Association’s fiscal year – PSAC’s fiscal year end is August 31. All memberships are subject to renewal effective September 1 of each year, and dues assessed in the first (partial) year of membership will be pro-rated to that date – applications received after May 1 of the current year will be invoiced to August 31 of the following year (ie: 16 months maximum).

Employee headcount is calculated as follows: Account for all Canadian-based employees, including field, office, part-time and contract workers to a MAXIMUM of 1000 employees; part-time and contract workers should be counted on a “person year” basis. Employees of any “child” companies to be listed under your membership must also be included in the employee headcount.
