Membership fees Table

Categories of members

The CPEQ has three categories of members, two for business associations and companies and a third for academic or research institutions. The CPEQ reserves the right to determine which category is better suited to a business association or a company when they apply for membership. CPEQ members thus fall into the following categories:

  • Voting members. This category is reserved for companies of 6 or more employees as well as business associations such as associations representing various industry sectors.
  • Observer members. This category encompasses companies of 5 employees or less, some business associations, as well as other types of organizations, including some parapublic organizations. The CPEQ created this category of members in 2011 to allow organizations that are not the target audience of its mandate and mission to benefit from its informational services. Observer members therefore have all the privileges of voting members, except for the right to vote at assemblies and the right apply for a seat on the CPEQ’s board of directors. They are also excluded from the process by which the CPEQ develops its positions, including working committee meetings. Observer members are therefore automatically dissociated from the CPEQ’s positions and do not contribute.
  • Institutional members. This category is intended for universities, university health centers and research groups. Academic members have all the privileges of voting members, except for the right to vote at assemblies and the right to apply for a seat on the CPEQ’s board of directors. They are also excluded from the process during which the CPEQ develops its positions, including working committee meetings. Academic members are therefore automatically dissociated from the CPEQ’s positions and do not take part in these meetings.
