Fee Schedule

Next year's Fees will be confirmed by beginning/middle of October.

2022 Membership Fees:

The following membership fees are applicable for the 2022 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 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.

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

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.
