Fees

Every Canadian university or college in good standing with the Universities Canada (formerly AUCC) shall be eligible for membership. Fees are determined on the basis of the institution's annual revenue from government funding and student fees. The fee categories range from $454 to $2,670.

CAUCE institutional membership fees are based on each university's revenue from Government grants and student fees as reported by CAUBO 1, augmented by a small percentage each year. Pre-existing ranges are used to determine each university's membership fees. The annual CAUCE membership fee would be determined by the range into which the level of its grants and fees fall.  Institutional members also pay 12% of their  fee as an annual contribution to the CAUCE Research Fund.

The following is the fee structure used to determine the annual CAUCE membership fee:
