About our Membership Fee Structure

On July 1, 2019, ONPHA began rolling out our new membership fee structure for housing members, as voted in at the 2018 Annual General Meeting. For current members, it will be transitioned in over a 4-year period to help you plan ahead. The first incremental changes to your fees appeared in the July 1, 2019, renewal packages. New members in 2020 will start immediately under the new fee model and new rates.

The new model is different in two important ways:

  • It is based on unit bands.
  • It offers a choice between two different membership levels: Core or Upgraded. Those choosing core membership will have access to core benefits and discounts, with some restrictions. Upgraded members* will receive additional benefits and greater access to customized resources, deeper discounts and more.

*Members operating 500 or more units will automatically receive an upgraded membership.

Benefits of the new fee structure:

  • Standardized fees that are more transparent and fair than the existing model
  • Choice of the products and services you want and need
  • Fee decrease for core membership for close to 80% of members. (Some members will see minimal increases, which will be introduced incrementally.)
  • Expanded service offerings from ONPHA.

Core vs. Upgraded Membership

Every ONPHA member uses our services differently. The new tiered model allows you to choose the level of service you want and need. Members operating fewer than 500 units now have a choice between Core or Upgraded Membership. Here’s the difference:



4-Year Transition

To ensure no changes happen suddenly and we provide current members with fee predictability, they will be transitioned to the new fee structure over 4 years (by the year 2022), with incremental changes each year. By this time, ONPHA plans to have our new lines of business fully operational. The chart below shows what the Core vs. Upgraded fees will be for existing members by the end of the 4-year transition period.
