Becoming a Member

So, your ready to make the leap (well it’s not really a leap, more becoming part of the community) and join the NCRA/ANREC for as little as $100 for your first year (and then between $100-$2000 each year after, as per our membership fee structure)

We suggest you contact us before applying, with any questions you might have. Applications are submitted below via Membee (our Association Management Software).

Upon receiving your application, our board of directors will review and look to approve it at the next board meeting. Board meetings typically happen monthly (less frequent around the end of the calendar year, and sometimes in the summer). The NCRA/ANREC Executive Director or Staff will contact you as soon as your membership is accepted.

According to our 2010 By-laws (By-law 1.10), the following are eligible to become a Regular Member:

  1. all campus, community, instructional and native radio stations who are licensed by the CRTC and who have applied for membership and been approved by the Board; 
  2. all internet-based and closed-circuit stations officially affiliated with a college or university in Canada who have applied for membership and been approved by the Board;
  3. all internet-based and closed-circuit stations that stream more than 20 hours of original hosted programming a week and are not for profit registered societies, corporations or cooperatives in Canada with provisions in their bylaws ensuring that they are public access, volunteer-based and community-oriented who have applied for membership and been approved by the Board; and  
  4. not-for-profit registered societies, corporations or cooperatives whose aim is to start a CRTC-licensed community or campus or native radio station, that also have provisions in their bylaws ensuring that they are public access, volunteer-based and community-oriented who have applied for membership and been approved by the Board. 

Finally, by applying you agree to the NCRA/ANREC Membership Agreement/Code of Conduct which is available to read here.
