Membership Benefits

  Insurance Fee





RMTs’ support of their professional association helps to keep the RMTBC strong, unified and effective. The RMTBC is pleased to offer MANY BENEFITS to our members.

Each member will now receive identity theft insurance with their dues. Activities that are part of your every day routine, such as using credit cards, ordering items over the phone or on-line by credit card, or submitting personal information to various levels of government can inadvertently expose your personal information to identity thieves. Your RMTBC dues now include expense reimbursements up to $25,000.00 per covered person to restore financial health and credit history as a result of an identity fraud.

RMTBC has several Membership Types. An RMT may qualify for any of these depending on the criteria. The base fee per year is provided below (to the right), and an Insurance Fee of $135.00 will be added to the overall Membership rate. All fees are a flat rate.

Dear Members,

RE:  GST Now Required on RMTBC Membership Dues and Services

In the spring of 2017, the RMTABC (the Association) received notification from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), the Association’s 2016 GST return as filed was going to be examined prior to assessment. As part of the examination, CRA has determined that members receive direct tangible benefits and services that are above the threshold allowed by CRA and therefore GST should be charged.

We are currently working with CRA to reconcile our GST account. Moving forward commencing January 1, 2018 the RMTBC will be collecting GST on membership dues and services, excluding insurance.

This issue is separate from the continuing work that the RMTBC is having with our colleagues across Canada to move the profession to be exempt from GST/HST. As you may know, this change will only occur once there are five (5) provinces regulated, currently there are only four (4).
