Your Membership Benefits

There are many benefits of CAIDP membership including:

  • Savings of up to $5,000 per year: on insurance, DEVEX, DevAID, OECD-DAC iLibrary, travel, hotels and much more including registration for CAIDP events (when fees are charged) and priority registration periods for limited events
  • Ethics: CAIDP members must subscribe to the Code of Conduct and members regularly review and update the Code to respond to new challenges.
  • A voice on international development issues: CAIDP provides an inclusive sector-wide voice on key international development issues, with individual members ranging from students to seasoned professionals and corporate members from academia and the for and non profit sectors.
  • Access to jobs and professional information: All CAIDP members get a subscription to the CAIDP-Hub which provides READ and WRITE access to Canada’s largest international development listserv (over 1,300 subscribers) which posts notices of jobs, events, training and more. All members have access to the JobBANK and Corporate members can post job opportunities free on the JobBANK on the website (over 3,000 visitors per month) and social media (reaching over 2,000).
  • Networking opportunities: CAIDP members also enjoy opportunities for knowledge sharing and networking including participating in CAIDP events, volunteering on CAIDP Committees, and posting on the CAIDP website including professional profiles and articles, news and commentary on the interactive blogs and forums.
  • Member-only content: More than half the material on our website is created by and for our members, and member content is given priority in our Quarterly CAIDP Bulletins, listserv, website and programming. Corporate members can also promote their events and other content on the CAIDP website and social media. Member registration is prioritized for our events and webinars.
  • Participation: Members guide CAIDP’s activities and priorities by participating in the Annual General meeting and by nominating and voting on candidates for the Board of Directors.
