Benefits and Services

We deliver a compelling value proposition to all members. Choose the membership level that lines up with the investment you want to make, the benefits and services you need, and the level of engagement you want your organization to have within the Canadian Renewable Association (CanREA) and the industry. Our extensive member benefits and services fall into five categories:  

Influence & Governance

Engage in your association and make your voice heard. Members elect and can run for the board of directors and (depending on membership level) can participate in association strategic planning and have regular touchpoints with the board and executives.  

Policy Development & Advocacy

Participate in community-of-interest and regionally-based policy and regulatory caucuses, steering committees, and working groups. In these forums, you can help to shape industry positions and recommendations to governments, agencies, and other key stakeholders. 

Profile & Branding

Raise your company’s profile and strengthen your brand through exclusive member profiling opportunities on the association website, in the member directory, and at our well-attended events. Align your brand with a unique national voice and broad industry network.
