Membership Levels

We currently have three levels of membership open. Please read to see which is the right one for you before joining.

**please note: we do check each blog or business that registers to ensure they meet membership requirements.

***we update our Membership Directory (for Primary and Abroad members) every Sunday evening.  If you don’t see your blog included the Sunday after you join, please be sure to contact us.

Canadian Food Bloggers – Primary Level

Primary is free and open to all food, beverage, or food producing agriculture related blogs that are published within Canada.  Your blog must be a personal one and at least 50% focused on food, beverages or food production (gardening, agriculture).  You must publish within Canada. We do review all blogs that apply and if you don’t meet the criteria, we will not approve your membership.

Because we do check each blog to make sure it meets membership requirements, please make sure that it’s clear somewhere on your blog or in your member profile which province you blog from – we also use this information to list you in our Membership Directory.

This level allows you to participate in our  contests, sponsored events or take advantage of any of our partner discounts and attend our annual conference.

It is very important that you please give us your real first and last name when you join.  We do review each member application.  If you don’t want your real name included in our directory please let us know and we will be happy to accommodate you. If you are an anonymous restaurant reviewer wishing to join, please contact us directly.

You MUST have an active food blog to join our membership.  If you are not a blogger yet, please feel free to browse the site and read our resources.  And be sure to join once you have your food blog up and running!

Canadian Food Bloggers Abroad – Canadians Abroad Level

If you are a Canadian blogging about food from from outside Canada, this is the membership level for you.

Canadians Abroad is free and open to all food, beverage, or food producing agriculture related blogs that are published outside Canada by a Canadian citizen.  Your blog must be a personal one and at least 50% focused on food, beverages or food production (gardening, agriculture).

Because we do check each blog to make sure it meets membership requirements, please make sure that it’s clear somewhere on your blog or in your member profile what country you blog from and which part of Canada you are originally from – we also use this information to list you in our Membership Directory.

Because of shipping costs, or due to the nature of some of our partners and contests, we can’t promise that the opportunities available to our Primary members will be available to Canadians Abroad.  We will make every effort to include you wherever possible and we will state clearly on all posts, contests, partnership offers whether or not the offer is open to Canadians Abroad.  You will still have access to all the site resources, a chance to become a featured blogger and to contribute to the site as a writer.

It is very important that you please give us your real first and last name when you join.  We do review each member application.  If you don’t want your real name included in our directory please let us know and we will be happy to accommodate you. If you are an anonymous restaurant reviewer wishing to join, please contact us directly.

Food, Beverage, Marketing or PR Related Businesses – Business Level

This level is open to businesses that revolve around food and/or beverages or who work with Canadian food bloggers.

Membership gives you the ability to mingle with our bloggers in the forums and build relationships.  However, we ask that any opportunities you wish to present to our bloggers be presented to our Administrative group through our contact form first.  Once your proposal has been approved you may post it to the forums.
