The workforce across our membership represents more than 1,500 science communicators and support staff in addition to more than 10,000 volunteers. Collectively, the budgets at our member organizations exceed $200 million annually.
FULL MEMBERS of CASC are organizations devoted, at least in part, to the public understanding and appreciation of science and technology and are incorporated as non-profit organizations or similar institutions administered by government or municipal authority, located in Canada and open to the public on a regular schedule.
Any of CASC's Full Members can apply to be part of the Reciprocal Agreement. The reciprocal agreement entitles CASC institution's members (i.e. families and individuals) benefits when they visit other CASC member institutions across Canada.
AFFILIATE SUPPORTERS of CASC are other organizations that agree with and have a strong interest in the objectives of the CASC. They may include, but are not limited to, exhibit designers and fabricators, gift shop suppliers and research consultants.
DEVELOPING MEMBERS are organizations that will meet the criteria for Full Membership but are not yet serving the public.They enjoy the same benefits as Full members.
The fee for each developing member will be assessed consistent with the organization's anticipated first year operating budget, and subject to review by CASC Board of Directors.
