For Speakers

Honoraria & Reimbursements


  1. For these locals – Edmonton Public, Edmonton Catholic and Ft. McMurray teachers, the standard honoraria for GETCA 2025 are as follows:

$200 per 60 minute session
$400 per half-day session (140 minutes)

2. All other speakers may submit an all-in inclusive fee (travel, materials, GST, etc. should all be accounted for in this fee).

3. The ATA requires that the GETCA provide the Edmonton Public School Board, the Edmonton Catholic School District, Fort McMurray Catholic School Board and the Fort McMurray Public School Board with the names of any EPSB, ECSD, FMCSD, and FMPSD teachers who are speaking at convention and receiving an honorarium.

Goods and Services Tax (GST) charged by a Speaker who is being paid to present at GETCA will be honoured only if the Speaker has provided a business registration number to the GETCA. GST should be included in your all inclusive fee.


  1. Should a contract be offered, the Speaker must provide either (a) a social insurance number or (b) an invoice from a company. This information will be used as required by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to report income. If you have any questions please contact the GETCA Treasurer at [email protected]. Invoices charging GST must include a GST business registration number.
  2. Where multiple Speakers are co-presenting, only the first speaker will be paid the all inclusive fee unless otherwise specified through your submission process. The first speaker or entity will receive payment for all presenters but the total honourarium will be reported to the CRA as being income received by that individual or entity. Any fee paid over $499.00 CAD will receive a T4.
  3. All out of country Speakers must file a form 105 with the CRA.
  4. Cheques are provided after the convention to those speakers who have provided their SIN to our treasurer ([email protected]) and will be mailed out unless collected on site at the desiganted area. Please ensure that your mailing address is up to date.
