SCANS News

  • SCANS annual membership dues for 2017-18 remain the same since '13-'14: $135 per year, however, because our annual revenue has exceeded the CRA threshold, we now must charge HST.
    Remember, SCANS does not charge any additional or per-course fees. Any changes to dues are made at the Annual General Meeting, held each spring.

  • SCANS Gift Certificates now available! On payment of a year’s membership and the name and contact information of your recipient, the SCANS office will email you a printable signed certificate made out to your intended. Contact the office.
