SSC Membership

JOINING the SSC

Joining a professional society as a student can help you to become connected to your future profession sooner and more strongly than otherwise. You will find networking opportunities, learning opportunities, and a sense of belonging in a community of professionals with similar interests and career goals as yours. The Statistical Society of Canada (SSC) is our nation's primary professional society for statisticians (and there is a special section for actuarial science, as well!). We encourage all students to join. 

Because we think membership is so important, all students in our department's major, honours, and graduate programs as of January 1, 2020, can join for free! Specifically, whether you are joining for the first time or renewing, the department will reimburse your $22 yearly dues. The process requires you to pay for your registration online and then file for reimbursement (see below).

You can enjoy the benefits of membership all through 2020-2021, including a discount on registration to the 2021 SSC Annual Meeting and the 2021 Joint Statistical Meetings in Seattle. So don't delay: join today!

Reimbursement Procedure

To be reimbursed the $22 cost of your SSC membership fee, you should complete a non-employee travel claim (available under "Relevant Links" on this page) and attach a proof of payment (a receipt or credit or debit card statement showing the expense charged to your account). Submit the completed and signed expense claim to Undergraduate Secretary/Financial Clerk (stat_usec_fincl at sfu.ca).
