CASA believes it is important that student leaders and their constituents alike can easily understand membership fees. Thus, CASA has an easy to understand formula to calculate membership fees set out in our Operational Procedures. Student numbers are calculated using the PSIS Data collected by Statistics Canada.


A full member’s fees for the fiscal year are calculated using the following formula:

Number of Students

Cost per FTE

1 to 6,000


6,001  to 12,000


12,001 to  20,000


20,001 and above



Membership fees shall be subject to a maximum of $54,363 and a minimum of $5,275 per fiscal year.
