Transfer of Membership
New to Canada?
ICSA Members who are on any of the ICSA registers and who wish to acquire membership in Canadian Division must relinquish membership in the other Division. The Institute does not permit its members to hold membership on more than one register. Individuals seeking to transfer their membership to Chartered Secretaries Canada are advised to request that their existing Division provide the necessary information to affect such a transfer to the National Office by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a fee of $113.00 to cover the cost of record the transfer.
While no further examinations are necessary, in order to understand the Canadian systems, you may find it useful to review our study guides in Corporate Secretaryship, Corporate Law, and Corporate Governance. Visit our online bookstore for more information.
If you are leaving Canada, your ICSA membership may be transferred to an appropriate Division of the ICSA, in which case you would have to resign your Chartered Secretaries Canada membership. On your instructions, the National Office would be happy to provide the necessary details to the Division to which you are transferring.
If you choose to leave your ICSA registration in Canada, then your membership will remain administered by Chartered Secretaries Canada.
