Becoming a member means that you get a say in our policy and direction. All you need to do is submit an application and one year of membership dues. You can become a member of COPE by filling out this online form or by printing out the paper membership form below.
Dues: Our recommended minimum Membership donation is $20.00 per year, but those who can afford it are encouraged to donate monthly (at anywhere from $5-$50 or more a month). Monthly gifts allow for stability and efficient financial planning and COPE relies on membership dues to keep the office open, hold big meetings, and keep the public informed about our goals and plans.
Membership types: Any person who supports the principles outlined in our Constitution and is not a member of any competing civic elector organization is welcome to join COPE and participate in discussion at our meetings, but in order to be a Voting Member it is necessary to live, work, or study in the City of Vancouver or the University Endowment Lands. You can join as an Annual Member by making a single payment which establishes your membership for one year, or as a Monthly Member by agreeing to a regular monthly payment which ensures that your membership will always be up-to-date (and makes it easier for us to plan by contributing to a stable base of predictable funding).
You can also become a member of COPE by filling out this paper form and submitting it by mail or in person to:
PO 4395 VANCOUVER MAIN
Vancouver BC V6B 3Z8
Please don’t forget to submit your donation with your application. You can do that by mailing a cheque with your form or by filling in your credit card information. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 604-255-0400.
