Dues represent only 18% of ASA revenue with fundraising making up the majority of revenue. A portion of the ASA dues is tied to the actual printing and postage cost of the journal. If a member opts out of receiving a print copy of PSCF, membership dues will be decreased by $15. ASA membership dues do not support CSCA’s own activities; for those, we rely entirely on donations.

Payment Options

Membership dues (whether new or renewal) can be paid in several ways:

  • To the ASA, in US dollars, via credit card at (detailed instructions below)
  • To the CSCA, in Canadian dollars (at par)
    • via Interac e-Transfer to (no security question needed)
    • via cheque to CSCA, PO Box 63082 University Plaza, Dundas, ON L9H 6Y3

When sending funds to CSCA, whether by cheque or e-Transfer, please clearly indicate:

  • your name
  • the breakdown of membership dues and donation

For example, if you are sending $300 to CSCA, write, “Jane Doe $114 dues, $186 donation.” Include this note in the cheque memo line (or separate slip of paper) or in the Interac e-Transfer comment box or send it by email to

Important Note regarding the Canadian dollars (at par) option

CSCA sends your full membership dues to ASA. For example, the annual regular ASA membership dues (including print PSCF) are 114 USD. So if you pay 114 CAD to CSCA, CSCA will have to send 114 USD (which is 155 CAD as of May 2023) to ASA, making up the difference of 41 CAD. Thus we will need donations to cover this difference. Thus we strongly encourage all CSCA members to make annual or monthly donations to the CSCA for this purpose (as well as to cover our other annual expenses of about $10,000).
