2016 Annual Renewal of Registration

As we get closer to the end of 2015, many of us will be thinking of the start of the new year and planning for 2016.

Unlike past years, the AIBC is sending out its annual renewal notice earlier than usual. We are doing this to provide architects and associates the opportunity to plan and to pay in a timely fashion before the busy seasonal period arrives. In addition, it is a chance to reflect on what the AIBC means to you and the public that it serves. The AIBC’s primary role is to regulate the profession of architecture in the public interest. In all our endeavours, the AIBC upholds the highest standards of governance and operations that are representative of institutional excellence.

To meet and maintain our consistently high standards, the AIBC Council has approved modest increases in the annual professional dues: $28 for architects, $7 for interns and architectural technologists and $3 for retired architects.

This increase underwent extensive deliberation by Council and received final approval at the November 2015 meeting. The new annual professional dues will enable the AIBC to address and meet the goals set out in the Strategic Plan.

Please be advised that the 2016 annual fee invoices will be sent out by email in the coming weeks. The deadline for your annual payment to the AIBC is February 1, 2016.

Key Dates:
November 2015-January 31, 2016 – Annual renewal period
February 1, 2016 – Payment deadline

If you do not receive your renewal notice email in the coming weeks, please check your spam folders or login to your AIBC account on the AIBC’s web site to view your invoice and make your payment.

While we offer a range of payment options, we highly encourage you to pay online as it is the most efficient method for the processing of fees. When logging in to make your payment, please keep in mind that individual login IDs are different than your firm login ID.

Information regarding applicable fees and payment requirements is outlined in Bulletin 01: Fees, Fines and Charges. For further information or additional assistance, email accounts@aibc.ca.

On behalf of the AIBC, thank you for your attention to this matter.
