Mathematics of membership:

 

The CAFC membership for individual members is set at a price deliberately intended to ensure a return on investment for municipalities. Consider that our yearly membership of $290 for individual chiefs and $145 for company officers comes not only with the benefits above, but over $600 in savings when we consider the $200.00 Fire Rescue Canada discount for members and the $500 in savings for webinar costs. This is in addition to education, networking, advocacy, data and best practices.
