The InfoEx Advisory Group (IAG) and CAA staff had hoped that a new subscription agreement and class structure would be ready for the 2016/17 season, but constructing a new agreement has been more complex than originally expected. After careful consideration it has been decided to extend the timeline for the project rather than rushing to finalize what might end up being a flawed update. The CAA/IAG believe that extending the implementation date will facilitate the development of a robust new subscription agreement including appropriate consultation time with subscribers. Therefore the existing subscription agreement and class structure will remain in place for season 2016-17.

InfoEx Subscription Rates for Season 2016-17
As explained above, after consultation with the IAG the subscription/class update will be implemented for the 2017/18 season. However a change that will happen as part of the subscription update is being implemented for season 2016-17 in the interest of fairness to all subscribers. Because the CAA has no expectation of incurring the additional costs associated with the option 2 surcharge it will be removed for the 2016-17 season and base rates will be increased by 8% to compensate for the corresponding loss in revenue. Subscription rates for 2016-17 are here.
IMPORTANT CHANGE: Payment is now required before subscribers can access InfoEx. This is due to some non-timely payment of invoices in previous seasons, and the significant overhead for CAA staff involved in dealing with this. Before making this change CAA staff consulted with and got agreement from the IAG and this was communicated to subscribers at the subscribers meeting in May 2016. If payment is received before December 1st 2016 (deadline extended) subscribers will maintain continuous access to InfoEx. On that date, all subscribers who have not paid will have access blocked until online registration has been completed and payment has been remitted.
The Run List and Avalanche Control extensions are $500 each (per season; 10% discount for CAA Associate members). To subscribe to the extensions contact Stuart Smith (250 837 2435 ext 257). Click here for more information and extension highlights videos.
