Benefits of Membership for Individual Members

The Statistical Society of Canada (SSC) is the only national organization in Canada devoted to the development of the professional interests of statisticians and probabilists.  Many dedicated members actively participate in its mission by volunteering in various capacities, and by becoming a member you help us develop the profession of statistics throughout Canada.  Note that membership fees are admissible expenses for many types of grants (e.g., NSERC).
