For the last 8 years, CHPJ has not raised its price above its introductory rate. From 2014 to 2019 a standard annual subscription to CHPJ cost $240. When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in 2020 we reduced the price by 50% to $120.
Inflation and other factors are driving the cost of business up, making price adjustments unavoidable. We are no longer able to offer CHPJ at a discounted price.
Effective 24 JAN 2023 the price of a standard annual subscription to CHPJ will revert to the pre-pandemic level of $240 plus HST. This is the same as in 2014, which represents 0% inflation in our price.
The new price applies to new or non-active subscribers only. Current active subscribers carry-over their discounted rate when their subscription automatically renews each year.
For new subscribers, the average monthly cost is still only $20. We hope you agree that this is a fair price to sustain CHPJ as a platform for independent, evidence-based health policy research.
