Membership FAQ’s

What are the benefits of CORA membership?
Becoming a member of CORA has many benefits. These are outlined in the CORA Membership Benefits document.

Are annual memberships based on a calendar year or a 12 month period?
CORA dues are based on the calendar year: January to December. Memberships will be available to purchase before the end of the previous year but are not valid until January 1 of the given year.

Do I need to log in to pay my dues?
Beginning with 2019, log in is no longer required to purchase a CORA membership.

How do I know if my payment went through?
You will receive an email with confirmation of your payment. If you don’t see that email in your inbox, please check the junk or spam folders.

Why can’t I pay via Visa or Mastercard?
You can! There is an issue with the display of payment icons. If you click one of the larger icons below the Pay with PayPal bar, you will be able to pay with the credit card of your choice.

Where do I find my CORA number?
Beginning with 2019, CORA numbers are no longer valid or necessary.

Can I change my password?
Beginning with 2019, log in and passwords are no longer required to purchase a CORA membership.

What if I have a new email address or other contact information has changed.
Beginning with 2019, all members must provide current contact information at the time of registration.

How do I pay the $15 day fee (single event membership) online?
Paddlers are encouraged to purchase annual CORA memberships. However, those wishing to purchase single event memberships can purchase $15 one-event memberships for sanctioned CORA races on-line on or after Monday 14 January. Please note that $15 single event memberships can not be converted to annual memberships, and new single event fees are required for each sanctioned event.

Please support CORA’s volunteer infrastructure by purchasing an annual $30 membership, which provides you with event access for all of 2019.
