Thank you for your interest in EESA membership! Here’s what you need to know about becoming a member:

Membership is available in the following ways:

  1. Primary (Individual) Membership – Single membership with no spousal or family extensions
  2. Dual Membership – Is a primary membership with a spouse where each member requires an ATT. Both members must reside at the same address, and both will be issued separate access cards.
  3. Family Membership – Is a primary member and/or spouse and/or minor children (under the age of majority). All family members must reside at the same address. One access card issued to the primary member only. All minor children must be accompanied at all times.

* Membership fees are pro-rated.  As a new member, you only pay for the number of months remaining in the year.  Example: If your membership activates on June 1st, your member fees would be $170.92 ($293 / 12 *7).  Note that after your initial membership is activated, all memberships expire December 31st of the current year.  Your membership renewal for the following year will therefore be due December 31st.

** The Canadian Shooting Sports Association provides our members with insurance.  All members are required to have a current CSSA membership.  CSSA membership fees are not pro-rated.

*** Init Fee, or Initiation Fee is a one-time fee paid by all members of EESA when they became members.

****Indoor range access is an additional $30 (one time fee).  This will activate your member card for the indoor range.

Once you are a member, you may opt to reduce your yearly fees with volunteer hours!

Approved methods of payment are cash, cheque, debit, Mastercard or VISA on-site during orientation. New members must be present at the time of payment. Phone or mail in credit card numbers are not accepted.
