Types of membership

FCM offers two types of membership:

  • Municipal membership (For all incorporated Canadian municipalities)
  • Affiliate membership (For all associations of municipalities in a Canadian province or territory)


As a member, you'll pay fees annually (April 1 to March 30), and can join at any time. Membership begins the moment we receive your payment, which includes a base fee and a per capita fee. We use Statistics Canada census data to calculate per capita fees. Affiliate members pay a flat fee.
