Fee Schedule for Membership
Membership fees are based on the annual staff payroll for each member organization. Payments to individuals will not be included in this total. (Membership fees are GST exempt.)
Annual staff payroll is determined as per calculations of total payroll for the purpose of remitting payment to the Canada Revenue Agency.
Organizations that operate more than one division shall include the total payroll for all service areas represented by ACDS.
The ACDS Board of Directors has the power to revise the membership fee schedule from time-to-time as it sees fit.

The ACDS membership renewal process begins in February of each year. At that time each member will be sent a Re-application Form accompanied by an invoice for the membership fee paid the previous year. The membership year is defined as at March 31, as per ACDS’ fiscal year (bylaw #3.b). Members bear the responsibility to update this fee in accordance to changes in their annual staff payroll.
A member is in arrears of payment of fees as at April 30, unless waived by the Board of Directors (bylaw #2.c). A member in good standing shall be defined as one whose dues for the current fiscal year are paid in full (bylaw #3.a).
