Note 1:

A condition of membership in AFOA Canada requires that all applicants join the AFOA Chapter located in the applicant's region, where one exists. Chapters are currently operating in Alberta, Atlantic, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan. Chapter dues vary and are based on level of services provided.

For more information on each Chapter and the Chapter's membership fees structure, see AFOA Chapters.

Members are invoiced once annually at calendar year-end for both Chapter and National membership fees.

Where a Chapter does not exist, the National membership fee of $150 applies.
