Learn More about Congress Fees

All Congress registration details including payment options, registration terms and conditions, and all deadlines are on page 35 and 36 of the Registration Guide. Online registration and the schedule of association meetings (including the fee structure) are available online here. If you cannot find the information you need, please email [email protected].

Q. What are the Congress fees?

A. The Congress fees are listed in the Registration Guide and are also available online. The Congress fees and Association meeting fees vary depending on the category (retired, student, unwaged, post-doctoral fellow or regular delegate).  There are also early, late and on-site fees.

Q. I am presenting at Congress, do I still need to pay the fees?

A. Yes. The payment of Congress fees is compulsory for all delegates including speakers, presenters, panelists, session chairs and attendants.

Q. What is the difference between the general Congress registration fees and the association meeting fees?

A. The Congress Registration fees go toward the costs associated with planning and organizing the Congress. The Association meeting fees are collected by the Federation (CFHSS), on behalf of the associations, to go toward the costs associated with planning their meetings or sessions at Congress.

Q. I have already paid my association membership fee. Do I still have to pay the association’s meeting fee?

A. All delegates are required to pay the association’s meeting fee to attend or participate at Congress. The meeting fee is not your membership fee. The meeting fees are collected by the Federation on behalf of the association’s at Congress. Membership fees are paid directly to your association and are not usually collected at Congress. Contact your association concerning your membership fees. For information on your membership status, contact your association directly. You can find a listing of association contact information online here.

Q. Do I have to be a member of an association to participate at Congress?

A. You can register for the Congress as a non-member of an association to attend sessions. However, if you are presenting at Congress or if you wish to become a member, you should contact your association prior to registering.

Q. What is the benefit of registering before March 31?

A. Congress fees increase as of April 1 and again on-site (see Registration Form in the Registration Guide, which is also available online).

Q. What is the cancellation policy?

A. Cancellations will be accepted until April 15, 2011, subject to a $20 processing fee. No refunds will be possible after this date.
