Become a Member

Your membership in REPAIRE reflects your participation in the ecosystem of independent research and experimental arts as well as your solidarity towards the improvement of the living and creative conditions of all artists involved.

You will find below the procedure to become a member of REPAIRE.


How to become a member?

  • Fill the membership form.
  • Once we receive your application form, the REPAIRE membership committee will evaluate your request within a maximum of one month.
  • If your application is accepted, you will then have 30 days to pay your membership fees.


  • Your membership is valid for one year, from July 1 to June 30.
  • Our annual renewal campaign takes place between May and June. The reduced rate for renewals is valid until September 1. After that date, the rate will be the same as the initial membership.
  • Please note that you will only be able to vote at the general meeting if you have been a member for at least four weeks before the meeting.
  • REPAIRE, born from the fusion of CQAM and RAIQ, has chosen to approach the membership of its members in the same way as a first membership, including renewals. We are aware that the process we have put in place is tedious and costly. This choice is explained by the need to be able to assert our professional representative character in the context of the law on the status of the artist, and this even before the Labour Court if necessary. The next renewals will proceed according to a simplified process. Thanks for your understanding.
