What does Canvas cost?


Canvas is free for every credentialed Foursquare minister as it is provided for, in part, by the annual credential fee.

To cover the user fees incurred by the National Church office, Canvas is available to all other individuals with a $40 per year access fee. This fee gives individual access to all courses, classes or other training opportunities available through the Foursquare Course Catalog.

This small access fee provides churches and institutes with a high quality LMS at a rate competitive to the actual expenses of most self-hosted/free systems (when calculating in the associated incurred costs of personnel, web hosting and update management).

Licensed Minister Non-licensed or Lay Leader
Canvas Access Fee $0.00 $40.00 per year
Course Fee Determined by the Church or Institute Determined by the Church or Institute
Total Church/Institute price Church/Institute price + $40.00/year

Your church or institute can charge students the yearly access fee individually or build it into the cost of the program.
