Genealogy Society Dependence on Membership Fees

The bar graph, based Schedule 6 annual reports to Revenue Canada, are the per cent dependence of various Canadian genealogical and family history societies on membership fees.
At 40 per cent the Ontario Genealogical Society is in the middle of the pack. But it's not steady, over the previous four years varying between 38 and 49 per cent.
The two Prairie province societies show much less dependence on membership fees. That hasn't always been the case. In 2011 the AGS was 39 per cent membership fee dependent.
The Quebec Family History Society is at the other end of the range, 75 per cent membership fee dependent.
If "he who pays the piper calls the tune" what is the message from your society?
