NOTE: In person Section meetings continue to be suspended until further notice.
New for 2020-21
We are offering members more flexibility in how you access Section programming. Effective this year, we are eliminating the webcast Section membership and allowing full Section members to have the option to attend any meeting of their Section in person (when in person meetings resume) or online. Non-Section and materials members will now have the option to pay a drop-in fee and attend any Section meeting by webcast.
Additionally, we are offering a one-time discount of $40 per Section on all full Section memberships and offering materials memberships for no charge. These discounts are already reflected in the prices shown on the online registration form.
Section registration will be available in mid-August - check back here for more information. In the meantime, if you have questions about your Sections, we encourage you to contact your local Section Registrar:
PORTFOLIO & PORTFOLIO PLUS OPTIONS
Please remember to purchase your Portfolio and Portfolio Plus packages BEFORE you register for Sections! You may then use your education credits toward your Section registration, as these cannot be applied retroactively. For more information on packages, and to see which one is best for you, click here.
View our 2020-21 Section Handbook for a complete list of available Sections and meeting dates.

Note: Section registration is a benefit available to Canadian Bar Association members only. Section memberships must be registered and paid for separately from the National CBA membership. Section memberships are individual memberships and are non-transferrable. The Section term is September 1 to June 30. If you cease to become a CBA member, your Section registration will be terminated. No refunds or cancellations will be issued on any Section membership.
