Membership Fees

Candidate and Member School Fees


The same fees apply for both Candidate and Member schools:

  • The membership fees for CAIS are based on the number of students enrolled in your school
  • The Annual Fee per student is $20.00 (Minimum fee of $3200)
  • Schools are invoiced semi-annually in July and January

In addition to the membership fees, schools are invoiced annually in July for the Heads & Chairs Conference. Attendance is an expectation of Candidate and Member schools. The current registration fee is $990, and includes participation of both the Head of School and Chair.

An additional fee is required for Member schools in the Canadian Boarding Collective. These fees follow a tiered structure based on the school's total boarding student enrolment.

There may be additional fees relating to specific services and events. Candidate/Member rates are available in the program descriptions.



Applicant School Fees


The Application Fee of $1000 is payable at the time of the application. Applicant schools also cover the travel costs associated with the Candidate Review Visit.
