  • I would like to pay for my due from 2018 and 2019. Can I do this with my credit card over the phone? I have been on the website and renewed for 2020 but when I put in my prior 2 years it took the payment and then renewed 2021 and 2022. If the website cannot renew prior years there should not be a place to enter any prior years and the payment should not process with the prior years included. I thought it was accepting the prior year due since it showed 2 prior year with a total of $135.00. very misleading

  • Hi Peggy,

    The Dominion Command website seems to be having problems processing renewals for prior years so we’ve had a couple other members that have faced this issue. We don’t accept credit cards through the Branch but if you could email us at branch7@shaw.ca with your name, phone number and a brief run down of what happened. Our Secretary has been coming into the Branch to check emails and phone messages so she can call you and try to help you sort out the computer error, I believe she’ll have to call Dominion on your behalf. Hope this helps. Take care
