CAA has moved to a universal renewal date. As of 2014, all memberships renew on March 1st.

For your convenience we are also offering an automatic renewal option. Many members have requested an automatic renewal option to make it easy for them to keep their CAA membership up to date, and this helps avoid late fees. You will be given this option at the time of renewal, and can change your decision at any time using the web service. We encourage you to maintain your CAA membership status so that we can continue to offer value for members (e.g., the CAA conference, the Canadian Hearing Report, CAA website resources) and represent your professional interests.

Please check your membership profile to identify your membership expiry date.

A note on security: all monetary transactions are processed by our e-commerce service (Moneris). When you make payments on the CAA website you are moved to the completely separate highly secure Moneris site. No financial payment information is visible on the CAA web site or stored by the CAA. Moneris has complete security to protect your information.

Refund Policy. Refunds for membership dues are not granted.
