Next year's Fees will be confirmed by November.

2024 Membership Fees:

The following membership fees are applicable for the 2024 calendar year (coverage between January 01 until December 31 of the given year). Membership fees listed are annual, and include all membership fees (including CIP membership fees and professional liability insurance premiums where applicable) as well as applicable taxes (GST).

PIBC fees are pro-rated (50%) for new membership applications after July 1st (Insurance fee is not pro-rated). Between October until December of each year we won't charge for the given year any longer (only the mandatory Liability Insurance Premium for the current year to be covered until Dec 31, depending on the membership category) and will ask to get the upcoming yearly Fee in advance.

Note: Membership fees are due every Jan. 2nd, or upon admission to membership, and are separate from any application, assessment, or other processing fees. Membership fees may be partially pro-rated for new members admitted part way through the first calendar year of membership.

Membership Fees are always for a member (1 person) and not for their current employer (company), although they will maybe cover their annual payment.

Late Fees for Fee payment & CPL reporting will be assessed (see far below & PIBC Bylaws).

We don't allow to put a membership on hold (no payment for a year / equal to resignation). Please check, if you can apply for on leave statusThe Renewal payment to PIBC is always due on January 2 of the given Renewal year (late fees will apply for late payments). We don't allow partial fees during the year. If normally covered by employer and they won't pay while on leave status: Please talk with your employer, if they can reimburse you later in the year, when you come back to work (forward your Renewal payment receipt to them).

Annual membership fees are non-refundable.

Initial annual membership fees for newly admitted members are due and payable upon admission to membership. Due to the federal Goods & Services Tax (GST) / Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and professional insurance requirements, total membership fees for certain members who live & work outside of the province of British Columbia or outside of Canada may vary from those listed here - please check with PIBC.
