The membership fee is an annual fee. In order to continue serving as Canada’s trusted resource for evidence-based research, and delivering the same high calibre educational program and networking opportunities we have in the past, it is vital that we seek ongoing support from our community.

What is your membership refund policy?

CCIC will not provide refunds for membership fees, except in special cases such as double payment. Refund requests for special cases within two business days of payment may be sent to info@ccic.net for determination.

What is the benefit to joining the CCIC?

Please send an email to info@ccic.net describing your interest in joining the CCIC for further determination.
