PCCAT Membership Structure


At the 2019 AGM, the PCCAT membership participated in a strategic planning session on the future of the organization. One of the recommendations coming out of this session was a proposed change to the PCCAT membership structure. Due to COVID-19, the proposed changes were put on hold in 2020 and were brought forward and approved at the 2021 AGM.

As previously announced, in 2022, PCCAT’s membership moved away from an individual membership structure to an organizational membership structure similar to that of other organizations, such as ARUCC. This structure will help to advance PCCAT’s work to facilitate the implementation of policies and practices that support student mobility across Canada. This membership structure will aid in improving equity for participating institutions as one voting member will be permitted per institution. This change came into effect in the 2022-23 membership year and is effective ongoing.

PCCAT Membership Categories:

PCCAT’s membership structure is based on four membership categories (Institutional, Transfer Organization, Associate, and Student Members):

Institutional Member

Institutional Members may be any Canadian public postsecondary educational institution or Indigenous adult educational institution offering postsecondary programs. Private and out-of-country postsecondary institutions that have been authorized by Canadian provincial or territorial or federal governments to grant degrees in their jurisdiction, that are members of a provincial transfer or equivalent organization, and that are recognized by a Canadian or an international quality assurance body deemed appropriate by PCCAT may also be eligible for institutional membership. Institutional Members are eligible to participate actively in the work of PCCAT. While the number of designated representatives may vary depending upon the Institutional Membership Category, each Institutional Member has one vote on all matters brought before PCCAT. Membership shall fall under one of the following categories, determined by total operating revenue:

Institutional Member Category Total Operating Revenue (annual) Membership Fee (annual) # of Designated Representatives # votes
