Become a Member
CEFRIO asks its members for a minimum annual subscription of $1,000. To this is added a variable amount of $10 per employee up to a maximum of $20,000. CEGEPS, municipalities, and agencies funded by the Quebec government benefit from a fixed rate of $1,000.
Using Your Service Credits
Each year, members receive half of their subscription cost in the form of service credits. For example, a municipality obtains $500 in service credits and a company whose annual contribution is $10,000 receives $5,000! Please note that service credits can only be used to pay up to half the total cost of participating in a project. Your service credits can be used when:
- You participate in research, survey, and strategic intelligence projects
- You take part in paid events such as seminars, symposia, and major conferences organized by CEFRIO
- You want to sponsor a CEFRIO event
