BECOMING A MEMBER

Our aim is that with each new member, our voice of reason and compassion gets stronger and more influential. As we grow in numbers, so does our influence with local, provincial and federal government decision-makers and the public opinion that guides them. Without this vital voice, the major influencers will continue to

WHAT DOES IT COST

Basic membership dues are $30 annually. We at this time are relying solely on this fee to run all the functions that make up this community, so we encourage and appreciate all contributions and donations above the minimum amount. 

Unfortunately, at this time we are not classified under a charitable status for our organization so we will not be able to issue a tax receipt.

If you do not renew your membership within six months of its expiry (exactly 18 months from the date of submission), you will have to complete a new application to join the SHC again.

*Please note, all approved memberships are non-refundable.

MEMBERSHIP TERMINATIONS

A membership may be terminated when a member is found to be violating our statement of values and principals.
