Incentives

Graduated Entry Fee

Join now as an Active member and take advantage of our graduated entry fee. 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.


Refer-a-friend

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.
