Website Help INFO

To some of us using a website seems easy, but for those who don't use our site very often it can sometimes be frustrating, especially if you are having trouble logging into the members web site.

A few things come up all the time....

  • If you can't see the "MEMBERS ONLY" section, check that you are actually logged in (click here for help) 
  • Not seeing something in the "Menu Bar" across the top of the page.  Before asking the question, be sure to look for a "Scroll Bar" on your browser as not all of the site is visible when it loads. You may need to scroll down to see more.
  • Trying to answer a "Forum" post and get a message that "...you do not have a valid membership"  - check the upper right corner of the web page to see that you are logged onto the site.  Only current members who are logged on to the site can respond to the "Forum"

If you have a question or problem, please email webadmin@cvmg.caWe will do our best to assist you.

If you have a suggestion for a topic you would like to see on the web site, contact webadmin@cvmg.ca and we will consider adding your suggestion to the web site. In the end, it may will benefit everyone.

Online Payments

CVMG offers 2 payment options: cheque or Visa/MasterCard credit card. We don't offer e-transfer because of the extra security controls and cost.


Paying by a Canadian credit card when outside the country is usually successful however, there are a few cases where our card processor's fraud detection security decides to block the transaction.  It depends on several factors including the country you're in, the accuracy of the home address you type in on the confirmation screen, etc. It also helps if you're using an actual computer (laptop or desk model) connected to the internet via a home or hotel network and not a tablet or mobile phone.

If you pay by credit card, you need to accurately provide the credit card info, the billing address for the credit card you're using and an email address.  If you receive a message similar to this, carefully check all the information and try one more time. It has been our experience of late that people often fail to include a space between the first 3 characters of the postal code and the last 3 characters. This will give you an error and your payment will not go through.

Make an online payment as follows (click on any image to enlarge):

- Login to the CVMG website    

(see topic above for help in logging in)  

- Click Pay online

- OR, click the invoice reminder (bottom right corner) or View profile (top right)



- fill in the information from your MasterCard or Visa credit card

- note the information has to be the same as it appears on your credit card account

- click Pay

-  you will be  returned to the website
