Costco Canada will Increase Membership Fees Starting June 2017

Bad news for all Costco Canada shoppers! Costco Canada (and Costco USA) will be increasing its annual fees. Starting June 1st, 2017. Costco Membership fees will change as follows:

  • Costco Canada Gold Star Membership: $60 (up from $55).
  • Costco Canada Executive Membership: $120 (up from $110).

Last time the fees were increased was in 2011 and hence this Costco membership fee increase was inevitable.

Costco has over 87 million members who collectively paid more than $2.6 billion US in 2016 for the right to shop at the Costco stores. This is surprisingly more than the company made in profits last year!
