The following are some of the benefits that come with membership in the Canadian Archaeological Association:

  • receive two annual issues of the Canadian Journal of Archaeology and special issues as occasionally published
  • receive logon privileges to the Members' Only Section of the CAA Web site
  • be eligible to deliver papers at the CAA annual conference (Individual members only)
  • be updated on issues relevant to the Canadian archaeological community
  • travel support for students formally participating (presenting poster or paper, chairing session, or serving as session discussant) in annual conference
  • contribute as a member to CAA Facebook community page on Canadian Archaeology
  • be eligible  for CAA Weetaluktuk  Student Award allocated every year in recognition of a worthy student paper

We have decided to add a new membership category. This has all of the benefits of the regular membership at a reduced cost. The only difference is that you only have Online access to CAA Publications  (you will receive no printed versions). If you like the feel of paper in your hands this is not for you. If you like the idea of going paperless, you may want to consider this option.

Your Membership in the Canadian Archaeological Association is due on January 1*, of the new year. In order to receive your two issues of the CAA Newsletter, the Canadian Journal of Archaeology, and maintain your logon account for the Members Only Section of the CAA Web Site, you are encouraged to establish or renew your membership as soon as possible.
