Should all required items be provided, the applicant’s credit history be positive and the application be approved by the Membership Committee of the Board of Directors, the application is automatically accepted. Please note that if accepted as a member of the Association, the applicant is subject to a one (1) year probationary period.

Each new application is also charged a one-time non-refundable application fee of $99*.
If you are accepted in July, the cheque which you submitted with your application pays your membership for twelve (12) months. Since our fiscal year ends on October 31, you will be invoiced for the following year, therefore you will be invoiced from July to October of the next year. Thereafter, you will be invoiced annually as is all the membership.

Should an application be refused by the Membership Committee, the applicant may appeal to the Association’s full board. In this case, the applicant must await the next full board meeting, which may be up to six months later. When an application is either cancelled or refused, the applicant is reimbursed the fee which was received with the application less $99.00, which is the registration fee.
