Memberships are renewed on an annual basis. For Health Science Centres, membership fees are based on annual patient care units representing in-patient, emergency and ambulatory care services; a flat fee schedule is applied to Regional, Community, Rehabilitation and Home Care Service Facilities. Health Care professionals who are not affiliated with a CAPHC member university centre, community or regional health care facility may become members based on a minimal yearly fee. Associate/Reciprocal members are not required to pay membership fees but are expected to make contributions in kind to support CAPHC’s ongoing activities.
