BCSLA dues allow the BCSLA to continue to offer high-quality programs and services. At the 2010 BCSLA AGM, the BCSLA Membership voted via Special Resolution to approve an annual increase in dues equal to the annual rate of inflation, based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI), across all categories every year, rounding up to the nearest dollar (Bylaw 3.85). The intent was to maintain a good level of service and to undertake strategic investments in the growth and development of the profession using a fair and transparent process. For information on the CPI, please visit www.bankofcanada.ca. At the 2022 BCSLA AGM, the BCSLA voted via Special Resolution to amend the bylaw and allow the Board of Directors to set dues as needed. For the 2023 dues, the Board approved a 5% increase.
The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) dues increased by 11%. For information on CSLA dues and fees please visit - https://www.csla-aapc.ca/our-members.
All BCSLA professional dues are due annually in advance, i.e., by December 31 of the preceding year. Any Member, Associate/Intern or BCSLA Affiliate allowing dues to become delinquent shall be assessed a penalty amounting to 15% of the annual dues.
