  1. Check if you are a CIRA member – search by email address. You need to be eligible to have a .CA domain in order to become a CIRA member.
  2. If you are a member, go to step 8)
  3. If you are not a member – apply to become a member. You can only be a member once, either for yourself or as a representative for a company.
  4. Submit your application. You will need a piece of scanned ID (or business information), your domain name and some contact information. It’s easier to apply for a personal membership then as a business representative.
  5. You will receive a confirmation email from CIRA that your application was received.
  6. You should receive an approval email if there were no issues with your application.
  7. The voter’s list for the 2017 CIRA Board Elections closes at the end of the day on August 29th, 2017, so you will need to become a member before that in order to vote in this year’s election.
