We've put together the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about APER membership for you. Do not hesitate to contact us for any other request for information.
We love welcoming and supporting new members. But if you’re actively involved in a legal dispute when you join the association, you won’t be eligible for legal services for the matter at hand—only future disputes are covered.
By “dispute,” we mean a problematic or confrontational situation with your employer, including a request to your employer that could result in a disagreement. If you’re not sure if your situation qualifies, please contact APER’s legal team.
Absolutely! APER offers personalized services to all manager members.
I’m a member of another association for managers in the health and social services sector and I’d like to join APER. What should I do?
Simply complete the Become a Member form and the tax withholding form. Once we’ve received your request, APER will handle cancelling your other membership. The other association will charge an early cancellation fee of 3 months. APER will cover the cost and take care of the red tape for you.
Do I have to maintain my membership if I’m out on parental leave, an unpaid leave of absence, or long-term disability (over 2 years)?
As soon as you stop receiving a salary from your employer, whether it’s for parental leave, unpaid leave, or long-term disability (more than 104 weeks), your dues stop being paid. To continue enjoying our services, please contact the APER administrative team directly to make payment arrangements.
Yes, if you would prefer to pay your APER dues directly, please provide us with a voided check so we can deduct them every month.
