How to pay your fee

There are 3 ways to pay your membership fee:

Annual pre-authorized debit

The CMPA debits your annual fee from your selected Canadian bank account on January 20 of each year, or the next business day. Simply select your payment method online (your CMPA member number and account password are required).

Notes:

  • If you participate in a provincial early reimbursement program, your bank account will be debited on the agreed-upon date specified in the documents from your province.
  • Early reimbursement is available in Alberta, Ontario and Québec only, and you have to complete all the necessary documents, if applicable.

Monthly pre-authorized debit

The CMPA debits your monthly fee from your selected Canadian bank account on the 20th of each month, or the next business day. Simply select your payment method online (your CMPA member number and account password are required).

Notes:

  • This is not available to members participating in a provincial early reimbursement program (in Alberta, Ontario and Québec).
  • Participation in the PAD plan continues until you notify the CMPA to do otherwise.
  • You have certain recourse rights if any debit does not comply with the signed agreement. You may revoke your authorization at any time, subject to providing notice of 30 days. For more information about pre-authorized debits, contact your financial institution or visit www.payments.ca.
