*All staff names and email addresses will need to be supplied to the IGA Admin Assistant as well as full payment by cheque, cash, or e-transfer upon sign up (credit card payments will be subject to a 5% administration fee).

Note: The administrative fee is only for guides who have Basic Knowledge certification with us. Individuals who choose not to pay the yearly administration fee may have their certification revoked and their profile removed from the IGA database.

If you require the basic knowledge certification to work as a guide and you are no longer in our system you will have to retake the course.

Basic administration fees that have lapsed for three or more years will be removed from the database. The IGA has no way of knowing if a guide has remained active in their perspective field if this fee is not paid.

Please note that while you do not need to be a member to maintain the basic admin fee, you must first create an account on this website to complete the process. Please log in below, or create an account to pay your basic admin fee online.
