Payment methods

There are three ways to pay your membership fee:

Annual pre-authorized debit: The CMPA debits your annual fee from your selected Canadian bank account on January 20th of each year for members on the calendar cycle (Jan. – Dec.) or July 20th for members on the academic cycle (July – June), or the next business day. Simply select your payment method online (your CMPA member number and account password are required). Alternatively, you can complete the Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Agreement [PDF] and send it to us with a VOID cheque from a Canadian bank account (cannot be a line of credit or credit card account). Note: If you participate in a provincial early reimbursement program (available in Alberta, Ontario and Québec) and you have completed all the necessary documents, if applicable, your bank account will be debited on the agreed-upon date specified in the documents from your province.

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). Alternatively, you can complete the Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Agreement [PDF] and send it to us with a VOID cheque from a Canadian bank account (cannot be a line of credit or credit card account). Note: 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.

Annual online fee payment: The CMPA offers an annual online fee payment option for members who wish to pay their membership fee through online banking. This option also allows members to pay in person at their financial institution or by telephone banking. Simply select your payment method online (your CMPA member number and account password are required). All payments are due in FULL no later than January 1st for the calendar cycle (Jan. – Dec.) and July 1st for members on the academic cycle (July – June). For more information and eligibility, review the Annual online fee payment FAQ or contact us.

All payments (including international) must be in Canadian funds and drawn on a Canadian bank.
