Payment options
You may pay for your registration online using Visa or Mastercard. If you would like to send us a cheque, select “Pay by invoice” under the “Payment method” option on the registration form.

Travel subsidy
As a result of changes to the Canada Book Fund programs, travel is no longer eligible for government funding. A task force was struck following the 2015 AGM to develop a plan to support member travel to ACP meetings. Following the recommendations by task force, in order to develop a travel subsidy fund, ACP introduced a levy of $150 per firm on meeting registration fees. The ACP will continue to offer subsidy to members who participate in two of three conference days. Travel subsidies will initially be limited to one per member firm. Please ensure you read and understand the terms of the subsidy before registering. Download the terms of the subsidy.
