Installments: Making Membership Payments Easier

CDHA’s 2020–2021 membership renewal period begins July 28. Because we recognize the incredible challenges that members are facing during the COVID-19 crisis, we are now offering membership fee installment payment options with no added fees.

Option Schedule Available in
4 monthly payments September 1, October 1, November 1, December 1 MB, NL, NT, NU, ON, PE, QC, YT
3 monthly payments August 15, September 15, October 15 AB*, MB, NB, NL, NS*^, NT, NU, ON, PE, QC, YT
2 monthly payments September 15, October 15 AB*, MB, NB, NL, NS*^, NT, NU, ON, PE, QC, YT

*For members in Alberta and Nova Scotia, further details will be communicated to you by CRDHA and CDHNS, respectively.
^For members in Nova Scotia, only active (practising) members experiencing financial hardship are eligible to pay the CDHA portion of their dues by installments. If not enrolling in a CDHA installment payment plan, members should continue to pay CDHNS and CDHA fees through CDHNS as is normally the case. The ability to pay CDHA dues in installments is for this year only but may be revisited.

The deadline has passed to sign up for a 2020–2021 installment payment plan. Please renew now or sign up for autorenewal.

Autorenewal: Making Membership Renewal Easy

Autorenewal is a convenient option that will automatically process your membership dues on an annual basis.* You can select a one-time payment date of either the last business day of September or last business day of October. Or, if you’re signed up for installments, you can opt in for autorenewal based on the corresponding installment schedule (see above).

If you haven’t paid your membership dues for the next membership period and would like this in place, update your profile starting July 28.

You can change your autorenewal preferences at any time. As fees change slightly each year, CDHA will communicate the new fee amounts via email a minimum of 7 days before your preferred payment date.

*Not available for members in Nova Scotia.
