CCEDNet members are either individuals or organizations.  The fee for regular membership varies based on ability to pay (see table below).

The ‘Sustaining Member’ fee level is for members who can afford to contribute more to CCEDNet’s mission. In addition to the member benefits listed above, Sustaining members will be acknowledged in annual reports, on the CCEDNet website and in newsletters, and can request a receipt for income tax purposes for the amount paid above the regular membership fee. Suggested Sustaining Member rates are flexible – you can contribute any amount more than the regular membership fee.

A Member Associate is an employee of an organizational member. Your organization must be a member of the Canadian CED Network to purchase an associate membership. A Member Associate receives all of the Network’s benefits with the exception of eligibility to vote on resolutions and hold office within the Canadian CED Network.
