      1. Discount on Individual Professional Liability Insurance
        Members receive a 40% discount on their individual Professional Liability Insurance, as follows:
     Professional Liability Insurance    Regular Fee    Discounted Fee
Physiotherapists - Option A $ 235.00 $ 139.00

                        a. Applicability

                                i. These offers cannot be combined with any other Professional Liability Insurance fee discount. In the case
                                   
where the member is eligible for more than one discount, the greater discount will apply (e.g. New Grad
                                   discount).
                               ii. The 40% discount on Professional Liability Insurance is only applicable to individual Professional Liability
                                   Insurance policies. It does not apply to any other insurance product available to members participating in
                                   the CPA liability insurance program.

               ii. Discounts on Membership Fees
                        a. Members may choose one of the following options:
                                i. Option 1: Discount on National Membership Fee
                                   If a member chooses to pay membership fees up-front, the CPA will provide a 15% discount on national
                                   membership fees as follows:

          Member Tier         Regular Fee         Discounted Fee
Practising A $ 297.50 $ 252.88

ii. Option 2: Complimentary Administration Fee for Monthly Payments
    If a member chooses to pay membership fees on a monthly basis, the CPA will waive the $25
    administration fee.

                        b. Applicability
                                i. Option 1 does not apply to provincial branch or territorial council membership fees.
                               ii. Option 1 and Option 2 cannot be combined with each other.
                              iii. These offers cannot be combined with any other membership fee discount, with the exception of the
                                   Maternity/Paternity/Sick/Disability Leave discount.* In this case, the member will receive 40% off
                                   national membership fees for the leave period and 15% off national membership fees for the remainder of
                                   the membership term when fees are paid in full or complimentary administration fees when paying
                                   monthly.
                              iv. In the case where the member is eligible for more than one discount on membership fees (other than the
                                   Leave discount), the greater discount will apply (e.g., New Grad discount).

 

*The Maternity/Paternity/Sick/Disability Leave discount is applicable to the following:

  • A full member who will be, or who plans to be, on maternity/paternity leave for at least three (3) consecutive months of the current/upcoming membership year; or
